Product Description

Produced in China, you will find no finer swords crafted for the practitioners and aficionados of the European Sword

DESCRIPTION:

This Federschwert, a HEMA sparring longsword, was designed to be safe in the thrust by flexing in the last third of the blade while keeping the rest of the sword stiff in the bind. The tip is slightly flared in thickness as well and can be used as it is with proper equipment or fitted with a leather mask or plastic tip for an added degree of safety.
(Photo colors may not match the actual colors)

 

Special Note:

The pommel is indexed to the flat of the blade, making it second nature to distinguish proper edge alignment with the rearward hand. The wood core grip is in a well rounded rectangular cross section and tightly bound with an overwrap of cord to provide a firm grip. The edges of the 9260 high carbon steel blade are thick and blunted for safety and to resist damage and wear on the edges. The last third of the blade toward to tip has significant flex to make it a safer practice sword when thrust at your sparring opponent - in addition to this, the tip is flared and thickened for additional safety. The tip can also take an additional leather or plastic tip to increase safety (not included). To ensure that the sword can perform well in the bind, the rest of the sword blade is stiffer.

    The Art of Medieval Style Sword Making

    The forging of a European / Medieval sword is a subtle and careful process, an art that has developed over the centuries as much in response to stylistic and aesthetic considerations as to technical improvements.


    There was a smith to forge the rough shape, often a second smith (apprentice) to fold the metal, a specialist polisher, and even a specialist for the edge itself. Before the blacksmith or sword smith actually starts hammering or heating the metal for a sword there is a lot of work to be done. The sword size, shape, properties, and metal composition all have to be decided upon. These factors determine the amount of metal, the temperatures of heating and the specific steps in the process that have to be completed.


    Blades were often forged with different profiles, different blade thicknesses, and varying amounts of grind. Some blades were made of a laminate construction, produced by folding the steel over and over then forge welding at each fold (resulting in layers). In this lamination method to refine and make the steel more homogenous it was folded and forges welded. The sword smith had to fold the bar of metal, resulting in a doubling of the layers and in the process blending the qualities of the various pieces of steel in the billet. The more the steel was folded the more homogeneous the metal in the blade became. The amount of folds would be determined by both the material and the final qualities the smith was looking for. One other way to combine smaller amounts of better steel into a larger useable billet was to create a piled structure where a few bars of refined steel were stacked together then welded as one and forged out into a blade shape without any further folding. But swords made by whatever means consisted essentially of careful combinations of softer iron with harder steel. There are many different methods for making a sword and the art has changed over the centuries as technologies, tools and the science of metallurgy has changed. But for the past five hundred years there has been one method that still stands as the most common.


    Today, swords are still being made by modern artisans; some pursue the traditional methods while others apply modern tools, techniques and materials to the craft. A great number of commercially available swords are being made in China with modern tools and materials employing traditional methods. Let's remember that steel-making was imported into Europe from China, via Korea. The steel used in the Chinese swords, called "chi-kang" (combined steel), was similar to pattern welding, and edges of it were often forge welded to a back of soft iron, or "jou thieh." In trying to copy the Chinese method, the European smiths paid much attention to the various properties of steel, and worked to combine them to produce an internal macro-structure that would provide a similar combination of hardness and toughness.
