Ensifer Freifechter (Long)
The legendary Polish feder featuring several aesthetic tweaks. With a comfortable and durable rubberized grip, and smooth round pommel, this is all the durability and handling that you've come to love from Ensifer. These handle almost identically to the Coronas, which are now discontinued and replaced by the Friefechter. The "long" length has both a longer handle and blade than the regular length models, offering plenty of space for a pair of heavy gloves and a little more reach.

"After 70+ HEMA tournament matches and 5+ years of consistent club sparring, my Ensifer is still going strong! If you're looking for durability, my recommendation will always be Ensifer." - Rachel van Dyke, SoCal Swords Instructor
"I used Ensifer blades for my entire competitive career, and my first sword from 2012 is still going strong!" - Sean Franklin, SwordSTEM
"To the best of my knowledge IFG/Indes has had over 30 Ensifers and I've never seen one fail catastrophically. They all just age out after developing rattles at the hilt after several years." - Joe Colistro, Lead Instructor IFG
"Jake's had nothing but Ensifer heavies, and usually passed them on to someone else who used them a year or two longer. The shortest lived was 4 years, and I think that one died to our sword-breaker who's done in about four feders now." - Brandi Lynn, HEMA Participant
"Ensifers don’t break... they break people..." - Jack Gassman, HEMA instructor and highly decorated international longsword fighter
Ensifer blades carry a warranty against breakage for 1 year from purchase, to be determined by the manufacturer.
