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.
