Type III Pentti Longsword with Disc Pommel

- Now with fuller and Disc Pommel
- Historical Weight and Balance

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 Review
Features



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.

4 of 5 Good product November 25, 2019
Reviewer: Garrett Tortorelli from Comox, BC Canada  
Everything was exactly as advertised. The blade had a small curve to it, near the tip, but I suspect that was due to the shipping process.

5 of 5 Great, Long lasting waster January 26, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from New Orleans, LA United States  
This waster feels very well weighted, comes exactly as advertised, and the price reflects itself in the quality. The wheel pommel weighs a little less than standard so the weight of the blade feels slightly different but feels good. Has a little more momentum behind it when sparring. overall, feels great, worth a try if you're only used to regular pommels!
