The Renaissance Side Sword is specially designed for safe and realistic fencing practice, catering to practitioners of Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) during the Renaissance period. Unlike the primarily thrusting-oriented rapiers of the time, the side sword retains the cutting and thrusting capabilities of late medieval arming swords while incorporating the added protection of a complex hilt hand guard.
This side sword features thick, well-rounded edges and a rolled tip to enhance thrusting safety. However, for further safety measures, it is recommended to attach a rubber tip or a strip of leather securely taped to the tip.
This updated sword design boasts a stiffer blade, a more robust hand guard, and a durable cord-wrapped grip, ensuring a reliable and long-lasting fencing tool for HEMA enthusiasts.
