Training sword, or as it is depicted on the only depiction from Maximilian’s march – Paratschwerdt

It is known today, that for sword-fight training were traditionally used training weapons. Few originals survived till today in museums. The sword you can order, was gradually developed in cooperation of St. Michael’s Guild with sword master Petr Matousek in the leading position, and sword maker Jan Motycka.

Even though this training sword looks more massive that its simpler “brother”, it is almost the same when it comes to its weight and the point of balance. The sword is good to work with and it is also comfortable when cutting and binding. Taper helps a lot – the gradual reduction of thickness from the guard to the tip.
