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.
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.
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.

Blackfencer Cup Hilt Rapier (Short)
Now with new black cord!
Perfect for those practicingLa Verdadera Destreza or those who want full hand protection in their rapier. With a smaller pommel to offset the shoerter blade length (compared to the long cup hilt), this rapier is balanced exceptionally well, and is safe in the thrust. At about 1/3 of the price of the steel offerings out there, it's an easy choice!
