  • HEMA Sparring Longsword (Federschwert)

    Red Dragon has been working on the concept of a fully customisable federschwert for years. This is no easy task but we are almost there! The federschwert will incorporate a range of different pommels, guards, grips and blades - all interchangeable by simply unscrewing the pommel.

    The Red Dragon HEMA Concepts Feder has been launched to test how these concepts work on a mass-produced scale. They are manufactured by a military spec. sword manufacturer in Europe and the quality of the blades reflect their expertise in this field. The tempered high carbon steel blades represent a harmonious balance between stiffness and flexibility, perfect for both drilling and sparring. The fattened, square tips are modelled on those of the late 19th-century practice sabres and are much safer and forgiving than rolled tips. (Fatter tips are planned on future models).

    Are the Feders as perfect as we are aiming for? No. There are many trade-offs when trying to produce a fully customisable sword. But we are almost there and this is reflected in the price. You may find the guards are a little bit loose. This would be an easy fix on a peened blade with a little epoxy and/or fishing wire. But we have designed these swords to be easily dismantled so that wasn’t an option. Of course, it is certainly an easy fix if you have no plans to dismantle the hilt!

    A great sword at a great price – whilst stocks last…

  • DAMAGED - Kingston Arms Federschwert

    DAMAGED - Broken Pommel/Missing Pommel.

    Based on a period original fencing sword now located in Switzerland, the Kingston Arms Federschwert is a well updated version of the feder originally offered by Hanwei in 2010.

Re-developed in conjunction with several HEMA groups around the US this updated Federschwert provides an affordable and reliable training sword for longsword fencing practice.

    Overall: 129.54cm
    Blade Length: 96.52cm
    Handle Length: 31.75cm
    Weight: 1672g

    Thickness at Guard: 8mm
    Thickness at Tip: 2.5mm

  • Club Sport Federschwert

    3 Review(s)

    The Kingston Arms Sport Feder is ideal for clubs, beginners and even seasoned practitioners that want a light, fast, safe and affordable sparring sword for HEMA longsword sparring. This federschwert was designed to be safe in the thrust by flexing in the last third of the blade while keeping the rest of the sword stiff in the bind. The tip is slightly flared in thickness as well and can be used as it is with proper equipment or fitted with a leather mask or plastic tip for an added degree of safety. 

    Other features include a ramped thumb guard, allowing easy placement of a gloved thumb onto and off the blade during guard transitions. The pommel is indexed to the flat of the blade, making it second nature to distinguish proper edge alignment with the rearward hand. The wood core grip is in a well rounded rectangular cross section and tightly bound with an overwrap of cord to provide a firm grip.

    Overall Length: 131cm
    Blade Length: 97cm
    Handle Length: 28cm
    Weight: 1389g
    Point of Balance: 8cm (at schilt)
    Blade: 9260 High Carbon Steel
    Edge: Blunt
    Pommel: Peened
    Scabbard: Not Included
