Synthetic Sparring Longsword Pommel with Black Finish
This new line of polymer sparring swords was developed in conjunction with Dave Rawlings, founder of the London Longsword Academy and the Historical European Martial Arts community. The longsword is well suited to students of both the German and Italian longsword traditions. They provide a more realistic replacement for the wooden waster for drilling and pell work, as well as providing a safer alternative for the steel blunt in contact sparring when used with appropriate protection. The pommel is made from a special blend of polymer and powdered metal to increase the weight beyond what polymer alone would allow. The threaded brass "supertorque" insert offers much better purchase than conventional inserts. 2 1/2" overall. Weighs around 2.93 ounces. A key feature is is the ease of assembly and disassembly, which allows for easy transport and customization of individual swords with the interchangeable components. Mix and match pommels, guards and handles to create your own custom sword.
