Type III Pentti Longsword with Disc Pommel

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
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.

5 of 5 Great sword excellent service May 20, 2022
Reviewer: Lisa Mildon from Minesing, ON Canada  
The training sword arrived and my son is thrilled.  It’s beautifully weighted and looks great.  Our package got stuck at Canadian customs for a bit, but when I reached out to the store they got back to me quickly. Cleared customs in a few days and was delivered quickly afterwards.

5 of 5 Excellent HEMA trainer April 11, 2022
Reviewer: Mike Willis from Liberty Lake, WA United States  
I've owned several composite swords, and this one is the best, hands down. Solid, sturdy, light. I would highly recommend adding this to your collection, whether you are a HEMA practitioner or just a collector.

5 of 5 An excellent training weapon! May 7, 2021
Reviewer: Hap Rossiter from Holiday, FL United States  
The balance is perfect for me it's not too heavy or light I can pull my blows easily with it so I don't hurt my opponent even if we don't have padding on. I normally favour a hand and a hand & a half sword but this is a very nice long sword for sparring & practice! 10/10 would buy again.

5 of 5 Beautiful sword March 31, 2021
Reviewer: Josephine Kelly from Murfreesboro, TN United States  
The sword we got is very sturdy and my son loves it. The team building them were kind enough to accommodate an engraving in a spot where they usually wouldn't do them and that was appreciated. It's well balances and easy to handle.. top notch work.

4 of 5 Quality longsword, customer service fell a bit sho February 12, 2021
Reviewer: Layf VP from Kent, WA United States  
I bought a split color grip, I wanted blue and orange but what they sent was blue and yellow without letting me know about the color change. I asked in an email if they had orange, I got no response so I figured they could do it and everything was good, then my sword arrived with yellow instead of orange. I wish I could have been told they didn't have orange or whatever and were going to use yellow. I wouldn't have paid for that color combo, and just gone without split colors if that was the case. Not great on them for just sending it without checking if yellow was acceptable over orange and just deciding what color my 10$ charge for split colors should be for me. but shipping was fast and the sword is great otherwise. I'll just have to deal with this ugly grip that doesn't go with my gear now. Quality product, but customer service fell short and I feel like I wasted my money on color options because they didn't check with me when I asked if they had orange.
