#207 Scholar's Sword
A single-handed training sword for the western martial artist looking for the feel and action of a period sword. This trainer is designed to take a great deal of use and provide a safe and effective option for todayıs student of such historical manuals as I.33. Period blunts of this type of sword seem to be very rare in collections today. We have based this piece on the sharp swords of the period and our experience with practicing Western Martial Artists today.

The blade is rectangular in cross-section with rounded corners and is tempered to a 50 RC. The blade is tapered to provide a slight flex in the foible but stiffness in the forte for correct action and feel. The slightly down turned guard and the faceted wheel pommel are made of tool steel and will survive rigorous use. The grip is hardwood covered in leather.

"I have used the Arms & Armor Scholar Sword and Spada da Zogho models regularly since September of 2005, and they are simply the best training swords available today. They are everything a swordsman wants: balanced, durable, historically correct weight and design, and a light, fluid feel in the hand that is unsurpassed. Built to specifications laid down by swordsmen centuries ago, these swords set the standard of excellence for training in the Western Martial Arts today."
