Synthetic Type III Meyer Style Longsword with Steel Pommel and Guard in Grey Blade

Has a German school Schilt and Slightly lighter blade.

Optional Stainless Steel Pommel and cord grip wrap.

The Purpleheart Type III synthetic federschwert was designed to giveHEMA fencers an alternative training tool. The schilt design lets youtrain familiarity with feders, while saving wear and tear on yoursteel feder, and providing compatibility with your other syntheticwasters and equipment.

A new cord grip wrap that is much stronger than our sports grip tape. We tested have been testing various types of grip and I'm going with a nylon cord. It has some grip, but not rough.Still a little smooth for quick handling of the sword. The local group has been using it for about 5 months now with little problems. It will not affect the weight and balance. Sweat will not affect it.

Martial artists and fighters have used steel and wooden training weapons for centuries. Many of today's competitive Historical European Martial Arts groups (HEMA) rely on synthetic wasters as an integralpart of their total training spectrum. These synthetic wasters are suitable for most drills, sparring, and free fencing with appropriate protective gear for hands, head, and body.Every training tool is a compromise between shape, weight, cost, and performance. With the right material and careful distal tapering, Purpleheart's Type III wasters provide an excellent combination of these qualities. The blade flexes well in the thrust even in highly competitive environments. This means a greater margin of safety for your fencing partner.The blade flexes quickly and retains enough stiffness to permit dynamic and vigorous fencing actions with a minimum of unrealistic blade whipping. The durable synthetic material allows a blade thickness of .5" (13mm) -- half that of most wooden wasters. This allows for a closer approximation of winding with steel weapons. Atthe same time, the blade thickness helps distribute impact force compared to steel blade edges, making for a slightly safer training alternative.

Purpleheart Type III synthetic blade durability is unrivaled. These training tools can stand up to years of daily, high impact training.They do not develop splinters like wood, or sawtooth notches like steel. In fact, some of our first production units are still in regular use after two years, yet show no signs of dents, nicks, orwear aside from superficial dirt and rust on the steel furniture.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 early16th 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.

Great sword
It’s a great sword, high quality and good flexibility. I think the box could have used better protection but the shipping was fast and nothing was damaged. No complaints and I would recommend for anyone interested in a synthetic blade.

Awesome sword! Where'd the schilt-less version go?
I picked this piece up as my first proper training synthetic for a couple reasons. First, I hear it's a bit less rigid in the thrust than the Blackfencer models, with a slightly longer handle for a comfortable grip with heavy gloves. Second, I wanted the integrated quillon that the Meyer model carries over from earlier Pentti versions - the thin rod makes it super easy to put a thumb on the blade

Warped, dissapointed.
I'm dissapointed that this arrived awfully warped along the flat of the blade. I took the pommel off, laid it flat with lots of weight and left it for 48 hours in desperate hope that it would correct itself. Sad to say that it didnt work like everyone says it does. The one thing I was hoping for while waiting 2 weeks for this sword is that it wouldn't be warped, I was praying for it to just be tru

Durable, and well balanced
The sword has a great balance to it, feels very good in the hand. It came in perfect condition as well, and so far appears to be even more durable than my polypropylene training sword. Its a little slippery in binds but that is not a real issue for me.

Great trainer
This is a great trainer, its flexible which is good safety for those who are being stabbed, the shape is very nice for training longsword with feders. Its very sturdy and the weight is very good on it as well. All in all a great tool to use when sparring with minimal gear, as well as learning basic longsword mechanics.
