Tinker Longsword, Blunt

Tinker Longsword HEMA WMA Sparring Sword, Blunt

$495.00

Paul Chen's  Tinker Longswords (Oakeshott Type XVIIIa) provide the WMA practitioner with a fast, well-balanced pair of swords that will perform beautifully in skilled hands. The Blunt Trainer features nearly identical handling to that of its sharp companion, but with thick edges and a rounded tip for safe sparring practice.What others are saying about the Tinker Pearce Longswords: "I had the opportunity to handle the prototype Tinker Pearce Line Longswords by CAS/Hanwei, and they are beautiful, well-balanced, quick-handling swords at an excellent price. The sharp and blunt versions handle almost identically in cuts, thrusts, and quick posta (guard) transitions. These promise to be the mid-priced training weapon of choice for longsword studies." Sean Hayes, Maestro d`armi,Northwest Fencing Academy and University of Oregon (www.northwestacademyofarms.com).See models SH2394 for the Tinker Sharp Longsword and SH2397 for the Blunt replacement blade.
