Tournament Feder, 46", Moderate, Rolled Tip, Rev A *
Tournament Feder, 46", Moderate, Rolled Tip

Price: $279.00

Availability: Made to order - allow time for processing.

Grip Cover


We will use extra glue to hold tight the grip, pommel, and nut. It will not unscrew without extra heat applied to the pommel. This creates a stronger solid blade. But limited options for swapping out the blade later.

Description Sizing
We worked with some folk at Austin Historical Combat Guild to get a shorter, quicker sword. This is what we came up with for superior training and tournament fighting.

Made in Hungary to special specifications for Purpleheart Armoury, and upgraded with a USA-made stainless steel pommel.

Replacement blade is here, and you can get stock email notification on that page.

4 of 5 Very lightweight feder June 30, 2021
Reviewer: Peter Dunkel from Carbondale , Illinois, USA  
The VB Tournament feder with rolled tip performs great. I teach Fiore at my club (Holmgang Southern Illinois) and have found it works great so far.
The feder is very lightweight and point of balance is very close to the hand so it doesn't feel much like a proper longsword, but understandable since it makes it safer for sparring.

5 of 5 Excellent Custom Feder February 7, 2020
Reviewer: Jay Fujimoto from Honolulu, HI United States  
The servicing and products from Purpleheart Armoury have alway been great.  But, Christian and the team outdid themselves with the custom feder.  

I read once that it helps immensely to ‘love’ your weapon of choice.  I’ve had dozens if not hundreds of weapon and trainers during my time practicing weapons based martial arts.
There are only a handful of these weapons / trainers that I can say that I’ve loved ... this feder is definitely one of those exceptions.  

5 star+ servicing and product.
