  • Hutton Duelling Sabre with scabbard

    One of the rapidly growing arts within historical fencing societies is that of sabre fencing in the late 19th-century Italian style, originating with fencing masters who were employed to train mounted troops in the effective use of the military sabre. The Milanese fencing master Guiseppe Radaelli is credited with developing this style, while Salvatore Pecoraro introduced refinements which resulted in the technique finally adopted at the Military Masters School in Rome. The hilt designs have been replicated in these training sabres, with stainless steel guards and wire-wrapped sharkskin-pattern grips. The high-carbon flex-tempered steel blades by Windlass Steecrafts closely follow the proportions of the period and have blunt edges and rounded tip for safety. Includes matching, full metal scabbard.

    Overall: 95cm
    Blade Length: 79cm
    Handle: 15cm
    Weight: 624g
