  • Fiore and Longsword length

    Reading through a bunch of different questions asked here and i keep seeing a mention of debate on the traslation of the Getty treatise on wether it was written as “sword in one hand/in two hands” or “one handed/two handed sword”. I haven’t seen much conclusion on what would make more sense. Would a shorter two hander make more sense? If so, what kind of difference are we looking at? Just an inch or two shorter? Or a completely different form of blade? Any help figuring this out would be much appreciated Thank you in advance! submitted by /u/The10fMany [link] [comments]

    Looking to expand into single sword after doing long sword for a year and would like to hear more opinions on my next sword purchase. I’m being told messer is the best choice as every competition will have one, but I’m not in love with it. I’ve played around with (other people’s) sword and bucklers, sabres and side swords but am having a hard time committing, so I’m coming to you. What’s your preferred single sword and why, as well as product recommendations? submitted by /u/LaMaitresse [link] [comments]

    I was looking to get into Hema, but sadly no hema or sports fencing clubs are anywhere near me so I can’t get a loaner or actuall lessons. I found a really sturdy rake handle and i wanted to know how affective cutting it down to the right length and using duck tape for a hilt and grip would be if not counter productive. At some point I want to buy a real weapon so idk if the weight ballance would be different and mess up my muscle memory or something like that. I was also wondering about putting padding on it via shreded pool noodle, because my brother is willing to spar as long as I pad the tip. He has no interest in learning technique, but I figure someone flailing a bat at me is better than nothing. submitted by /u/Slinky958 [link] [comments]
