5 of 5 Feder or Blunt? May 28, 2020
Reviewer: Michael Graham from Conestoga, PA United States  
This is an interesting feder. Its blade length, grip length, and lack of a schilt would suggest it is a blunt, but its uniform blade thickness, mild flex, and rolled tip suggest it is a feder. This is something in between and I was interested in this because I believe that many modern feders have gone too far from their historic representations with some feders resembling zweihanders more so than a longsword. This budget feder very much resembles the tools used in Fiore’s manuscripts, much more so than any other feders I have seen.
The construction seems solid enough and the steel is of a good balance between flex and rigidity. I wouldn’t expect to be able to use this in a tournament, but I am far more interested in Fiore’s sword art being reconstructed with detail rather than competitive HEMA personally.
