Traditional blade design “BATTLE”

The traditional blade design will be called “BATTLE”. These are robustly designed blades for full contact fighting, where the hard parries, striking opponent’s weapon aside using full force etc. are common occurrences. This variant is our typical design of the blade, which is mostly known to the sword-fighting community. “BATTLE” variant is designed for maximal durability even in cases of incorrect technique use, occasional mistakes etc. There is of course possibility to break even this blade, but it must involve the extremely incorrect use i.e., if it is used as an axe or a steel bar.

In any case even this most durable design is result of a compromise between weight, mechanical durability, balance, safety and other parameters. For example our typical one-handed sword is approximately 1.3 kg.

I recommend this variant for large battles, for beginning sword-fighters and also for people who tend to use more powerful blows when in action. And of course it is ideal for the sword-fighters who prefer to feel the weight of their sword and don’t want some twig.

Some organizers of the battles and the meetings demand for the safety issues upholding so-called CODEX BELLI (minimally 3 mm edge profile of blade and minimally 20 mm diameter of sword point). It isn’t problem to make a blade in these parameters. If you need a sword like that, please let us know in your order.

For sword-fighters who find our basic “BATTLE” design unsatisfactory (because of weight, balance or the other reasons), I would recommend to consider ordering the “SLIM” or “FEATHER” variants, but only after they think about their technique and how they plan to use the sword.

Basic characteristic:

  • Weight and balance is typical for robust and durable weapon.
  • It satisfies demanding safety conditions for use in battles (3 mm edge profile, 20 mm point diameter).
  • Typical design of our weapons.
  • It’s durable enough to endure heavy use.
  • For some people weight and balance could be unsatisfactory.
  • Good warranty conditions.
