Description

SH2395 - Long Sword Blunt Trainer designed by Michael `Tinker` Pearce and reproduced by Hanwei to his specifications.

This 2 Handed Longsword features a Type XVIIIa blade with a narrow fuller running approximately 1/3 it's length. Typical of the late Medieval period this style of longsword exhibits fantastic cutting and thrust ability thanks to its gradual profile taper and central ridge. The blunt trainer is a perfect match for studying the arts of the Liechtenauer tradition. The Blunt Trainer features nearly identical handling of its sharp companion but with thick edges (2mm) and a rounded tip for safe sparring practice.

The swords meet Tinker`s exacting quality requirements and are built in much the same way as his custom pieces. Each blade is forged from 5160 Spring Steel Marquenched to the desired hardness of 50-53 Hrc while the tang is drawn back to the low 30s Hrc. For the Medieval models the very end of the tang is threaded to fit a 5mm allen nut recessed into the pommel which allows for dismantling of the hilt assembly for inspection to exchange blades if needed and for anyone wanting to easily customize their grip. Also the Sharp and Blunt blades are interchangeable on all Medieval models. The grips are cord wrapped and leather covered wood and tapered for a comfortable grip. Each sword is supplied with a leather covered wood scabbard with metal throat and chape.

Made by Hanwei.
