The saber was the weapon of the soldiers and dueling heroes in the Carpathian Basin for more than a thousand years. During this time it became more than a simple tool of fighting. It became a loyal companion and a symbol of valor of the wielder. This weapon and the valiant spirit of its wielders became known in Western Europe and North American via Hungarians. At the time of our settlement Western Europe feared the sight of the saber, it became a worthy opponent of the Turkish and later, after the civil war of Rákóczi it brought honor in the wars fought at the side of foreign countries. Maybe there is no other sword type like this which reserved its significance for so long time.

Reviewer: Jared from Korea  
So first and foremost, shipping this tine was a little bit of a interesting event. My original order got lost. However customer service was awesome and was able to send another copy.

The book: the structure of the book is easy to follow. It start at the beginner and moves through master levels. The text is clear and concise. The pictures  are not always clear but with the text it is easy to figure out techniques.

This book is not really a sport fencing book however. This book is more of a battle field style fenceing. How to move and fence aginst multiple opponents. It also covers empty hand techniques. Very similar to savate.

Also this book has a section of hungarian heros and influences on sbaer fenceing. If you like history that is also a very interesting portion.
