The Federschwert, or Feder sword, is a training sword that was used in Fencing schools during the Renaissance. Perfectly designed, the Federschwert served to safely practice full speed combat among practitioners, while reducing the risk of injury. The Federschwert greatest attribute is their similar weight and balance to real swords of the same period. The Federschwert is shown extensively in the fighting manuals of the 16th century, particularly those of Paulus Hector Mair and Joachim Meyer.
The Feders can be order with the traditional schilt (as shown) or rounded schilt for safety purposes.
