The blade and hilt of Hanwei's Hutton sabre imitates the style of the true military sabre and provides a more realistic military training sword. The blade is somewhat shortened and lightened, with a rounded tip for effective training, and exhibits a somewhat greater flexibility than the live military sword.
One of the rapidly growing arts within historical fencing societies is that of sabre fencing in the late 19th century Italian style, originating with fencing masters who were employed to train mounted troops in the effective use of the military sabre. The Milanese fencing master Guiseppe Radaelli is credited with starting the development of this style, while Salvatore Pecoraro introduced changes and refinements which resulted in the technique finally adopted for sabre at the Military Masters School in Rome. The hilt designs developed by Radaelli
have been reproduced in our fencing sabers, complete with stainless steel guards and wire-wrapped sharkskin-pattern grips. The high-carbon flex-tempered steel blades closely follow the proportions of the period and are button-tipped for safety. The blade and hilt of the Hutton sabre is closer to the style of the true military sabre. Ships Separately, No Express Shipping available on this item.
