  • Cold Steel Training Rondel Dagger

    Why not practice with some of Cold Steel's most popular knife designs, in relative safety, by using one of their rubber training knives? Each item has been carefully constructed to look and feel as realistic as possible to be effectively used in solo practice, training drills, disarm drills and demonstrations.

However, they have a level of firmness that might cause injury to the face or eyes, so it is recommended that appropriate eye protection or a fencing mask is always used when using a Cold Steel rubber training product.

  • Regenyei Armory Tournament Sabre

    When you need to get the job done, nothing quite beats the Regenyei Armory Tournament Sabre. It is built for full contact sparring and is also suitable for the rigours of tournament use. The blade is flexible enough for full-strength trusts, but because of its high durability, it won’t let you down in the middle of your most important fight. We will say that this blade is quite stiff though, so if you can avoid being hit by a thrust, do so! (but that’s kind of the point!).

    The perforated guard is functional and decorative and robust enough to keep your hand safe. The wooden grip is cord wrapped and is capped by hexagon nut pommel, to allow for disassembly.

  • Practical Rapier - 43" Blade

    1 Review(s)

    The Schlaeger Rapiers utilize a popular swept hilt, modified to accommodate Hanwei's schlaeger blades in 37" (SH1099) and 43" (SH1098) lengths. These tapered blades provide a superior balance compared to the traditional parallel-sided schlaegers, making for a faster sword.

    Paul Chen's Renaissance-style Rapiers trace their origins to early 17th century Europe, where swordplay with the Rapier was considered an essential part of a gentleman’s education and was often used in resolving gentlemanly disagreements. Blades generally originated in one of the blade making centers such as Toledo or Solingen, but many differences in styling and hilt materials resulted from the local manufacture of hilts all over Europe.
