The Blackfencer Bastard sword offers something a little smaller in proportions than the normal longswords. The "hand and a half" length hilt combined with slightly shorter blade gives it a unique, yet very historical feeling in the hand. Be aware that fitting heavy HEMA gloves on this handle is a challenge, this sword is best used with minimal gloves.
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.
