Hanwei Practical Side Sword

The Practical Side Sword (SH2279) uses the same hilt as the sharp version(SH2203), but carries a sparring blade designed for safety. Side sword sparring, in both sword & buckler and sword & dagger modes is becoming increasingly popular with many proponents among the ranks of the various Renaissance societies.
The Side Sword was a military sword of the 16th and 17th century Renaissance period that also achieved popularity among civilians, due to its relatively light weight and quickness. It also had an advantage over its contemporary, the rapier, in having the ability to cut efficiently as well as thrust. Side swords were often the weapon of choice for sword and buckler fighting. Our side sword, based on a German original, is a beautifully proportioned piece that balances very well. The "swept" hilt affords excellent hand protection and the blade geometry makes for outstanding performance in both the cut and the thrust. Includes black leather scabbard.
