Kingston Arms Blunt Fencing Side Sword

Designed for safe use in fencing practice, the Renaissance Side Sword provides a realistic fencing simulator to the renaissance period HEMA practitioner. Unique in the time of the primarily piercing oriented rapiers, the side sword kept the cut and thrust aspects of the late medieval arming swords and added the protection of a complex hilt hand guard. This side sword features thick well rounded edges and a rolled tip for greater thrusting safety. However with all fencing swords we suggest affixing a rubber tip blunt or piece of leather strip taped to the tip.

This updated sword design provides a stiffer blade, a more robust hand guard and long lasting cord wrapped grip.

Side swords were popular among the well to do classes of 16th century Europe and were effectively the precursor to the rapier in hilt, though with a blade closer to older battle tested arming sword designs of previous centuries. While it effectively was the father to the rapier, it was not superseded by it, remaining in use until both fell out use in favor of the much shorter civilian side arm, the 17th century smallsword.
