These are the second largest swords that we carry, dwarfed only by our synthetic zweihander. Featuring classic diamond shaped parrying lugs, large protective rings for your hands, and a loooong blade, these synthetic montante are a blast to swing around! There’s no surprise that many historical manuscripts advise practicing with a large two-handed sword; After just a few minutes of swinging one of these around, you will start to quickly understand how to guide your blade through the air with skill and precision rather than brutish strength.
I have both the montante and the flameberge both are great trainers. More flex than expected but it's understandable as it mitigates damage to a degree. Love them both and look forward to years of use.
