There isn't a more classic shape in our catalog than the Blackfencer Longsword. It's our second best-selling sword (after the Standard Federschwert), and for good reason. The swelled grip, pinned-through guard, and Blackfencer's specially selected nylon make this the best synthetic longsword you can buy!
Our #1 selling sword! This classic training shape and design of the Blackfencer Federschwert has been around for centuries. The synthetic blade has the same balance, flex, and weight as a thin steel blade. It is also highly durable, with almost no reported failures.

Blackfencer Katana (With Edge Shape)
We still need to measure these out, but they look and feel great! The edge-shaped models are a little longer than the fuller models.
Blackfencer's Protective Caps were originally created to cover the ends of the old longsword cross guards. Since then, the cross has become thicker (and safer), and we've found that these make exceptional sword tips! Use them on everything from rapiers to feders (steel) for drilling and sparring.
Blackfencer Musket with Bayonet
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.
