Synthetic Longsword


This is the sword that started it all for many of us. With no fancy rings or decorations, this basic longsword is about one thing: training! Use it on your pell or use it on your friend (who is hopefully not also your pell). There is ample length on the handle to fit a pair of heavy fighting gloves, without being overly long. They handle like any good longsword, nimble but with a presence to the blade.

49” overall length
37.5” blade length
8”+ handle length
2.5” from cross point of balance

Great trainer

The sword has excellent handling. The cross guard is large enough. The fit and finish is a little coarse but is better than the similar model from Purple heart.


Item arrived in excellent condition and it’s exeactly what I was hoping for. Terrific quality for sparring and the red/black cord wrap looks even better in person. couldnt be happier so far

Synthetic Longsword

Good Choice

First synthetic owned, second used so this isn't the most informed.

The colored blade makes it hard to discern edge alignment without a mirror, but it's just barely manageable with the reflection from my microwave.

Balance is ~2-2.5" forward of the quillon.

Weight is slightly heavier than the synthetic I've been using in class, so the extra strength training was a pleasant surprise.

The handle has enough space for use with the cowhide work gloves I bought and I still have a little room to spare, but I haven't tried it with proper protective gloves yet so I'm not sure how it will turn out. I have high hopes though.

Overall, definitely recommended.
