OVERVIEW

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 developing this style, while Salvatore Pecoraro introduced refinements which resulted in the technique finally adopted at the Military Masters School in Rome. The hilt designs have been replicated in these training sabers, with stainless steel guards and wire-wrapped sharkskin-pattern grips. The high-carbon flex-tempered steel blades by Windlass Steecrafts closely follow the proportions of the period and have blunt edges and rounded tip for safety. Includes matching, full metal scabbard.

Makes a good Stage Prop
Ok, the Drawbacks:  The sword cannot stay secured to it's scabbard;  the pad that sits between the sword guard & the scabbard mouth as a seal cannot stay where it should.  The blade is supposedly made by the Windlass  co.  I have 2 items made by Windlass both have the Co.'s Maker's  Mark on them, this blade does not.  Training & Theatrical  blades tips are either rounded or folded  over as a safety;  the tip still has a point.

The Good Points:  The Blade has a good spring back to shape quality.  The overall workmanship of the sword & scabbard is professional quality. The balance of the sword is perfect as far I can tell  And the handling of  the sword is very good.

This is a reproduction of  a practice tool that may have been used in the 19th c.  But I wouldn't recommend it for practice in a fencing Salle of today.  It does make for a very  good  'Wall-Hanger'  that you can take down & practice saber moves & exercises  with.  It's also good-looking enough & well-handling enough that you use it in  theatrics.  But before you use it as a prop  I  suggest you grind the sword tip to a rounded end.  And there's enough room within the scabbard that you can add a rubber/plastic cover for the rounded sword-tip.  I've been using contact-cement  instead of cap on my practice knifes & sword; you can use rubber-cement or a rubber/plastic cap if you wish.  And you'll have to make your own pad to replace the felt one that lay between the guard & the scabbard; you could use cut-to-shape   layered leather or rubber or cushiony synthetic material.  A Decent buy.
