New from Red Dragon (known for their high-quality HEMA plastic training swords) is this line of high-level replica historical swords. These swords are supplied with a leather scabbard with belt and are made of a high quality steel and hardness so that they are suitable for intensive training.
This sword is a replica of a 13th century historical one-and-a-half sword. It has a size between a single-handed and a two-handed sword. The grip is slightly larger than that of a one-hander, so that when you hit hard, you can put a hand on the grip for extra strength.
This one-and-a-half-hander has a wooden scabbard wrapped with brown leather and a brown leather grip. The edge is 3 mm thick so the sword is suitable for re-enactment battles and HEMA. In addition, the blade is tempered and made from EN42J spring steel. It has a core with a steel hardness of 45 HRC and the edge has a hardness of 50 HRC. Because of the two different hardnesses, the sword is flexible and less brittle than comparable models. This sword is a combination of excellent craftsmanship and years of HEMA experience.
The sword lends itself best for slashing, is durable and can be used very intensively for HEMA training.

Solid build yet the handle has a bit of a wiggle just below the cross guard, had to tighten it up myself. All in all, a good purchase.
