Even in the medieval times, the need to develop a safe longsword simulator arose, which bought the historical practice sword or Feder to life. The Feder resembles a longsword only crudely, but the handling characteristics are almost the same, while it is flexible, unsharpened, has no piercing tip and protects the fingers with the characteristic "Schilt" ("shield" in German). As it wasn't considered real weapon in many countries under medieval law, citizens were allowed to keep and use it.
According to Wassmanssdorf (in the end of the 19. century), the original name for this tool was Paratschwert (parade sword) and the name "feder" was given by later generations. Most of the fencers today use the word "feder".
This tool is a standard model with ideal measures and optimal balance. It can be used well against longer and shorter feders as well.
Regenyei also makes flexible training tools for other weapons.
