Type III Pentti 47.5" Longsword with fuller
Features
This longsword was designed to be a bit lighter than our normal 50" longsword. The grip is slightly thinner for smaller hands. The fuller keeps the weight back making this and quick deadly blade.


For best performance, store them as you would a steel sword when your equipment is not in use: in a cool, dry environment and resting flat or hanging by the crossguard. Heat, humidity, and resting a weight on top can all cause the blade to bend and take an undesired set. Treat it well, and this tool will serve you for years with almost no maintenance.

The Purpleheart Type III synthetic longsword was designed for use in the study and training of approximately late 14th century to early 16th century two-handed longsword fencing. Examples include Fiore dei Liberi, Sigmund Ringeck, and Joachim Meyer.

This is the most widely used synthetic waster across all HEMA tournaments in the world. This training weapon was developed in collaboration with some of the world's foremost HEMA instructors, American and European. Its dimension and weight specifications fall within the range of historical examples. It handles very well in both one and two hands, and allows the wielder to perform longsword techniques at the blade, in winding, and ringen am schwert with a minimal loss of fidelity from steel. Furthermore, with appropriate protective gear, the waster handles very well in thrusts -- preserving accuracy of technique balanced against safety for training partners.

Customer service December 31, 2017
Reviewer: Oswaldo  
I purchased a sword from them as a Christmas present.  I messed up the order and didn’t realize it till I received it.  Getting close to Christmas I was worried about turnaround on the item.  After a few emails they expedited the new sword and put a return shipping label in the box for the old one.  Great customer service.  I wouldn’t have any problems ordering from them again.

Reviewer: Paul Wandless from Chicago, IL United States  
I needed to have the sword by a certain date and I emailed customer service to see if it was possible.  They responded quickly and were able to ship the sword to me by the date I requested.  The customer service is really great and the sword is high quality and well made.

Beautifully crafted. September 9, 2017
Reviewer: Nathan from Caledonia, MI United States  
Good weight and balance. Flexes enough to not impale your opponent, but still rigid enough for good sparring.
