Fiori Longsword

Click on image to see greater detail
The above is a photo of our Fiori type longsword in a gray finish with a brown stained maple grip and flamberge blade. This is similar to the swords depicted in the treatise by Fiore dei Liberi entitled Fior di Battaglia ('Flower of Battle', also known as Flos Duellatorum) of 1410. Blade blanks are 54 1/2 inches long overall. Stock blades are therefore available in lengths up to 43 inches with an 11 1/2 inch tang or 42 inches with a 12 1/2 inch tang and so on. This design dates back as far as the 14th century and possibly earlier. Our hilt has an 11 3/4 inch long cross guard, and two, one, or no open side rings. The example depicted has both rings. The side rings measures 3 inches long by 2 inches wide. The the pommel weighs 16 ounces and is pear shaped. Custom disk pommels are also available. This hilt is available on our Alchem flat tang longsword blade. These blades have a 3/8 inch wide by 1/8 inch thick rounded tip for those individuals who do not wish to use a rubber blunt. The rounded edge varies from 1/8" thick at the middle of the blade and tapers down to .066 inch to .071 inch at the back end of the flare of the tip. The point of balance is about 3 inches ahead of the guard, depending somewhat on blade and grip length. For a customer review and close up photos of this blade type follow this link.

Meyer Longsword

Click on image to see greater detail
The above is a photo of our Meyer longsword in a black finish with a black stained grip. This is similar to the swords depicted in Joachim Meyer's fechtbuch of 1570. Stock blades are available in lengths from 38 to 43 inches. This design dates back as far as the 16th century. Our hilt has an 11 3/4 inch long cross guard, and two, one, or no open side rings. The side rings measures 3 inches long by 2 inches wide. The schilt on the Meyer sword is not attached to the blade. It is actually part of the guard and consists of a rectangular tube which slides over the first several inches of the blade from the tang end. The banded wooden grip may be up to 10 inches long and the pommel weighs 16 ounces and is pear shaped. A 12 ounce pommel of similar shape is also available. Guards may be ordered straight (I), or curved forward (C shaped). This hilt is available on our Alchem flat tang longsword blade. These blades have a 3/8 inch wide by 1/8 inch thick rounded tip for those individuals who do not wish to use a rubber blunt. The rounded edge varies from 1/8" thick at the middle of the blade and tapers down to .066 inch to .071 inch at the back end of the flare of the tip. The point of balance is about 3 inches ahead of the guard, depending somewhat on blade length. For a customer review and close up photos of this blade type follow this link.
