HEMA Sparring Longsword (Federschwert)

£145.83

Be the first to review this product

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…
