The swept-hilt rapier by Blackfencer is an excellent low-cost option for those who would like to train rapier, while being tough enough to spar against other synthetics on the market.

Blackfencer Steel Ringhilt Federschwert
With rings on both sides, this sword is made to protect. The rings are large enough to put your thumb through with gloves on without being obtrusive. The Blackfencer steel federschwert falls into the “long” feder category, but handles like a much smaller sword. With smooth chamfered edges, excellent flex, and that trademark Blackfencer handling and durability, you will be hard-pressed to find a better workhorse steel sword.
In 2018, SCS went to Spain to fight in a tournament run by Blackfencer. Several students begged Alberto Aquillue (head designer and co-owner of Blackfencer) to make a feder. His answer was a solid no. He stated that with the feder market being already saturated, he would need to design a sword that really stood out, and he wasn’t sure if that was possible. Fast-forward to 2020, and somehow, he’s done it! With this price point and quality, we can confidently say this feder brings an exciting new option to the market.
Blackfencer developed this maintenance kit to get you started with everything you need to take care of your steel sword(s)! The metal polish assists with shine, the oil protects, and the sanding sponges will help remove any burrs and rust from your blade. Blackfencer has a tutorial video on how to use the kit here.
Plus: For a small additional cost, we'll add a hardened steel file to your kit. These are helpful if you have a particularly nasty burr or chip on your blade or guard that you would like to smooth out. Either way, this kit will help keep your swords free of rust and looking their best!
