This elegant sidesword features space in the ricasso to place your finger over the cross, a slender blade with appropriate flexibility, and yet sufficient stiffness for any action where you must “beat” the opponent’s blade aside. With the point of balance being close to the ricasso, it’s easy to molinet; meanwhile, the 2-pound overall weight ensures that you can cut with ease and “feel” what the sword needs from you.

I run an exclusively Bolognese fencing school, and this is the only option I recommend to my students (if they are not ready to get a steel sword). The weight, balance and durability are simply unmatched by anything else. If you cannot go with steel, this really is the only sword you should consider.
Definitely best synthetic sidesword on the market. It is worth every penny. Balance is great and the grip is comfortable use.
These swords are excellent for side sword training! My 11 year old son and i practice nightly with them.
