The cord wrapped leather grip feels exceptional in the hand with an oval cross section and slight barrel shape to keep fatigue at bay. The grip is large enough to accommodate armoured hands. A respectable fuller runs the length of the blade to lighten and counter balance the sword overall. A wood core and leather wrapped scabbard tipped with a stainless chape comes with each sword.

  • Tourney Arming Sword

    Blunt Single Hand Sword for re-enactment and stage combat. Our Tourney Series Sparring and Stage Swords will set a new standard in this price point of re-enactment weaponry. Features like thru-tang handle construction, peened stainless steel pommel and guard and 2mm rounded edge thickness

    The cord wrapped leather grip has an oval cross section and slight barrel shape to keep fatigue at bay. The grip is large enough to accommodate armoured hands. A respectable fuller runs the length of both pieces to lighten and counter balance the sword overall. The blade is forged from 9260 high carbon spring steel and is tempered to around 50 Hrc. The sword is supplied with a wood core and leather wrapped scabbard. The guard features the King-Peen system. King-Peen is essentially a steel tab on the guard under the grip that is pinned through the tang of the sword. This process keeps the guard from going loose after a lengthy campaign without compromising the strength of the hilt. The pommel is pressed into place and hot peened. Combine these two processes and you get a sword that rings like a bell when struck.

    Overall Length: 94cm
    Blade Length: 76cm
    Handle Length: 11.4cm
    Weight: 1445g
