Go to a HEMA event anywhere in the world, and you will see one of these. There's a reason: They are simply the best synthetic feders that money can buy. They are exceptionally durable, safe to thrust with, and handle like a good sword should. This is by far our #1 selling item, and we always have more of them on order.
49” overall length
37.5” blade length
8.5” handle length
2” from cross point of balance
After 6 months of moderate use, I can absolutely recommend these trainer swords. The balance is perfect, the nylon blade/tang is heavy duty and would last many more years of the same level of usage. The grip wrap hasn't come loose at all, and the pommel and cross guard are like the day they arrived (they are made of steel). I've used them at the beach, stuck them in the sand, gotten them wet, and whacked them together thousands of times. If you're looking for a practice sword with realistic weight and balance, this is my recommendation.
I haven't gotten to use it for anything more than drills, but it hasn't rusted and sports a very nice pommel. Balance and weight make it exceptionally easy to use.
Slight bend due to delivery but was able to fix it per their instructions. Overall a good sword especially considering the price!
Not only was it a fantastic sword that had all of the feel and balance of a real steel feder, but these guys actually overnighted it to me at the tournament that was using it at. I unwisely made the mistake of trying to get one through Amazon after I belatedly discovered that the novice division of the Icebreaker Tournament does not allow steel swords. Amazon instead of sending me the longsword I ordered through them, sent me weather stripping. As such, I was forced to scramble for somebody that could get a synthetic feder to me, at the tournament, at the extreme last minute. These guys more than got the job done, and I got my only career win with one of their swords. I cannot recommend these guys in stronger terms. Fantastic sword from a fantastic company.
