  • SPES AP Light Plus Women's Jacket 350N

    We recommend it for every lady who trains HEMA, regardless of the level of skills or advancement. It is very universal, which makes it a great base for completing full HEMA equipment.

    This jacket has the so-called double closure. The front has a black trim. Blade catcher is attached to the collar, and on the back there is an adjustment belt. As in every women's jacket, the lower edge of the AP Light Plus is finished with slits at the back. Mounting points on elbows allow you to use additional overlays, e.g. Shell or PRO.

    Like its archetype, AP Light Plus is made of 350N puncture resistant materials. Inside, there are pockets for additional foams (included in the set). You can modify the cushioning of the jacket at any time - add extra layers or get rid of them altogether. The choice is up to the user. The lining is made of 3D mesh.

    AP Light Plus is a lightweight jacket with breathable layers like other jackets in the Light series. It provides a high level of mobility, so it will not restrict movement during exercise. You can be sure that the jacket will not change its position during training thanks to the possibility of adjusting to the body. The women's version of the AP Light Plus gives a wide range of modifications, thanks to which it will be perfect for both heavy and light HEMA training.

  • Practical Hand-and-a-Half Sword

    2 Review(s)

    The Practical broadswords are all based on authentically styled swords in our Paul Chen collection but they are tailored to meet the needs of re-enactment and stage combat. These very popular and affordable weapons feature authentic hilt styling, with fully tempered un-edged and un-pointed blades. They are designed to withstand rugged use while providing the level of safety required by many of today’s re-enactment societies.

    The blades are crafted from 1065 high-carbon steel, hardened to 50HRC, which restricts edge-notching to acceptable levels while providing resilience and protection against brittleness. While the blades are substantial, they are fullered to provide balance and good handling characteristics. They feature 1/16” wide edges and rounded tips for safety. The tangs are also substantial, with radiused corners at the blade shoulders and no welds. The end of the tang is riveted over the pommel, which both eliminates any possibility of inadvertent disassembly. The hardwood grips are leather-covered.

    Total length: 111cm
    Blade length: 86cm
    Grip length: 16.5cm
    Weight: 1315g
    Point of Balance (PoB): 10cm
    Point of Harmonics: 58.5cm
    Width at Guard: 4.5cm
    Width at Tip: 1.3cm
    Thickness at Guard: 0.5cm
    Thickness at Tip: 0.45cm
    Blade: 1065 High Carbon Steel
    Edge: Blunt
    Pommel: Peened
    Scabbard: Plastic

  • SPES HEMA Cloak 350N - Colour Option - Special Order

    Our HEMA Cloak 350N came into existence at the request of Rebel Fencing School. This type of garment refers to the cloak-and-dagger genre.

    HEMA Cloak can be worn by women and men. This item is lightweight and it will perfectly fulfill your training gear. We recommend using it with a rapier or sword, but you can also use it with other light simulators.

    Gear of this type has a form of a segment of a circle. It has a black lining and a collar. It is fastened with leather laces in front and it rests on shoulders.

    Our HEMA Cloak is sewn from 350N puncture-resistant fabric. It is similar to medieval cloaks from three-quarters of a circle. In comparison to the woolen original, our HEMA cape is much lighter. This cape can be worn on both shoulders, on one shoulder, or in the hand, like a shield.

    Length: 110cm
    Weight: 1.6kg
    Material: 50% Cotton, 50% Polyester

    All dimensions are approximate and may vary from piece to piece.

  • Tourney Hand-and-a-Half Knightly Sword

    5 Review(s)

    Our Tourney Series Medieval Sparring Swords from Kingston Arms will set a new standard at this price point of re-enactment weaponry. Features like thru-tang handle construction, peened thru-tang stainless steel pommel and guard, 2mm rounded edge thickness make these brutal weapons on the battlefield. 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.

    Total length: 105cm
    Blade length: 83cm
    Grip length: 15cm
    Weight: 1559g
    Point of Balance (PoB): 10cm
    Blade: 9260 High Carbon Steel
    Edge: Blunt
    Pommel: Peened
    Scabbard: Leather, Wood, Steel

    All dimensions are approximate and may vary from piece to piece.
