Fechterspiel translates to ”assault of arms”an apt name for this western martial arts training weapon. Combining quality and historical accuracy, this sword is an excellent piece for the longsword practitioner looking for a period style and handling. The grip is covered in leather and has a slightly flared waist. The pommel and guard are solid steel and all are mounted on a blunt practice blade with a sturdy tang. The ricasso is full thick in the center and then steps down on the flanges to eliminate some weight from the blade and add a bit of style.
