If you could buy just one pair of swords for your club, this is the model we would recommend. Durable enough to be used for many years to come, these offer something that most training swords lack: BIND! The interlocking teeth on the edges of the blade ensure that they will stick when edge-to-edge, then slide appropriately when turned to flats. We have compared these to real sharp longswords, and the bind is strikingly similar.
Despite common concerns, there is little need to worry about the teeth increasing the risk of injury. While there is a higher chance of small scratches on uncovered skin, but we have found the Longsword Sharp Simulators to pose minimal increased risk among our students at South Coast Swords.
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.
4 lbs, 7.5 oz

Blackfencer Protective Cap
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.
