Since the mid-seventeenth and throughout the eighteenth centuries, the foil has been used as the training instrument for the small-sword. The foil was an important training tool and masters used varying forms and sizes to develop good skills in their students.
Today those interested in the French school of Small-sword often desire the feel of the small-sword itself rather than a foil. Unfortunately, finding and purchasing a well made small-sword at an affordable price can be a daunting task. Very good small-sword replicas are available but only custom made and at premium prices.
Now for the first time a simple austere yet elegantly designed practice small-sword has been developed and constructed providing a lightness, length and balance very close to an actual period piece.
These “Practice Small-swords” are available in three different grip lengths. In order to select the appropriate size, it is best if you use your glove size as a reference point.
Leather grip colors available:
