Designed with the expert guidance of Roberto Martinez-Loyo of Elite Fencing Club, this macuahuitl trainer offers a realistic weight and balance without breaking the bank. The macuahuitl was typically a ripping and tearing weapon used for taking prisoners, and when you handle this and imagine the flint-lined edge, you'll understand why.
Based on a Brown Bess Musket (a historical training tool), this synthetic musket and flexible bayonet is a unique offering created by South Coast Swords and Blackfencer. The musket has sufficient weight to mimic the handling of an original, without being abusive if an accidental butt strike lands. A piece of metal (not included) can also be strapped to the rifle portion to reach the appropriate historical weight. The bayonet offers exceptional flex, and is pre-drilled with a pin to hold it in place. The bayonet may also be removed for ease of storage.
