"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.
I love my Ensifer short feder, but I wanted something to use in fighting taller people with longer feders. This fit the bill perfectly! Great handling, nimble, and responsive. One note of caution though, this thing hits like a Mack truck if you're not on top of your control game.
