HEMA - Feders, longswords

Longswords are two-handed swords, that became popular in the 14th century, the Late Middle Ages. It appeared due to the development of armor. Since more developed armor like plate armour offered a better protection, shields were no longer obligatory. Instead, longer swords could be used due to the freed hand.

It was the weapon of nobles and knights. Typically used in conjunction with armor, simpler soldiers still stuck to the one-handed sword-shield combo. Later, in the Renaissance, they became more widespread, and they also started to be used for fencing. The first long sword fencing book was published in the 14th century by the famous Italian fencer Fiore dei Liberi. Johannes Liechtenauer started the basics of longsword fencing in German territories.

A feder sword, derived from the German "federschwert" meaning "feather sword," is a special-made longsword. for the study and practice of historical European martial arts (HEMA). Their blades are forged to be flexible, and more thin. Which means the sword is capable of the same moves as a regular longsword, but the blade itself has less mass, and thus a weaker impact. Meanwhile still retains most of its weight, so the practice you do is easily applicable on a full longsword. This feature allows practitioners to engage in spirited sparring matches and drills, with far fewer bruises.

Sharpening a sword blade before or after assembling the sword.
During sharpening, the blade loses its original thickness, making it more flexible and lighter, but also more fragile, of course.

The use of sharp swords is a training exercise that requires practice and knowledge, which must be exercised with extreme caution!

Damage and deflection of the swords are primarily due to cutting errors, so these damages are not warranty problems!

Blade: without Fuller

There are several blade types to choose from: stiff or flexible blades.
 
We offer our federblades a wide range of flexibility, which is adapted to the different fencing techniques.

More and more people are taking part in Tournaments, where a strong blade to blade contact belongs to the fence. We offer them the tournament blades, which are very strong but not flexible, closer to a combat-ready sword, but more dangerous when performing stitches.
 
The flexible blades are designed for light, technical fencing, there is no strong blade contact, it is more about fencing techniques. These blades are light and flexible, are very flexible and bend at the stich - thus taking much of its dangerous energy from the attack - but they are weaker at the same time: they are not suitable for fencing with full contact.
 
The medium stiff blade is the most sought after and a large number of users use this type. These blades withstand hard blade contact, but are also flexible and make fencing safer.
 
Before buying, we recommend that you agree with the Fencing Club which blade the coach proposes to your knowledge and fencing style!
