Extended pommel gives an extra 6.5cm of grip. This allows for the bulkiest of padded gloves and provides a lot of extra torque in the blade!

A standard on the HEMA circuit for years, the Rawlings synthetic training swords have been called “the Swiss Army Knife” of the Historical European Martial Arts world.

They are constructed from a special blend of high impact plastic and can be used like a waster for Drilling and Pell Work and can also be used for Sparring (with appropriate protection). 

The Blades are designed to flex in the last 1/3 of their length towards the tip allowing for much safer thrusting. The blade/tang joint (traditionally a weak point) is reinforced by a high tensile steel rod running along the full length of the handle. This also removes any flex in the handle traditionally associated with plastic training swords. 

The Standard Guard is constructed from reinforced high impact plastic. The ball shaped quillons are designed for safety when sparring. They are modelled using the same dimensions as seen on an existing 15th Century Longsword. This is a nice example of a historical design that helps us with safe sparring. 

The grips are manufactured from a rubber-like thermoplastic elastomer designed to absorb the impact of strikes as they are transmitted along the blade. They are designed to slide off the sword's tang with relative ease and will compress for a tight fit. 

The Pommel is constructed from high impact plastic. This provides these swords with excellent balance and makes them safer than metal pommels for pommel strikes. A brass nut is moulded into the pommel to provide a tight metal on metal joint to the tang. 

The swords can be taken apart easily by unscrewing the pommel. This not only makes transporting them easy – it also allows you to customise your sword with a range of interchangeable parts (available separately). 

A synthetic sword without steel fittings weighs about 2/3 of the weight of a real sword. This is designed to lower the impact when sparring. The weight is kept back towards the hilt further lessening this impact. They are very well balanced.  

This range of swords is manufactured in the U.K to the highest quality. They are constructed from reinforced high impact plastic (U.K. sourced for quality control). 

Recycled materials are used when available. Whilst this does not reflect in the quality of the product it does lessen the impact on the planet.

Very well made, the rubber handle seems just a tad too long to fit perfectly, but thats not a big deal. The blade is nicely shaped and has a great resistance. Overall, recommend it.
