Fedpreg- Espada FEDER
The Standard Longsword Feder of the Regenyei
Armory Ltd. is, although made with the aid of modern technologies, still
a handmade training tool. It is a true copy of the 15th century Feders,
while it answers the international purposes of the increasingly popular
Historical European Martial Arts.
The Feder sold by PBT has optimal properties to fight against shorter
or longer Feders as well, as it is a general model. It’s perfect
balancing eases its handling, independently of the body measures of
the swordsman. The blade is not very rigid, it bends by thrust. The
tip is backfolded, blunt, so the power of the thrust spreads on a bigger
area instead of one point. The edge is rounded thereby the hits don't
cause a heavy injury. On the blade above the crossguard is the so-called
Schilt (schield) to defend the hands in the course of fighting. The
ends of the crossguard are expanded to decrease the risk of accidents.
The blade and the crossguard are made of high-class spring steel, toughened
to 50 HRC according to Rockwell-scale to reach the required flexibility
The pommel is an elegant turned pear-shape which affords a fast clench
during the fight. The grip is made of hardwood, with oval cross-section
tapering off to the pommel, as this shape fits the the hand comfortably.
Its wrap is black-painted line-cord wire which keeps the grip from sliding
in the hand.
Due to the especially stable, very strict joints and the high-strength
gluing of the four parts – the blade, the crossguard, the grip
and the pommel – becomes the Feder a durable and high quality
For its safe usage must have a proper protective equipment.
