Inspired in the popular longswords from 14th and 15th centuries, the Black Fencer synthetic longsword incorporates all the important qualities relative to the weight, balance, and mass dynamics of a steel sword, keeping also the flexibility qualities for a training sword, and maintaining the safety of the nylon material, so we can practise historical fencing with proper force and intent, without padding up too heavily.
