Krieger’s Specter sparring safe longsword features a long slender blade that features twin fullers. This sword is slightly slimmer than our Sentinel blade and features a micro schilt to help protect your knuckles, however it’s not as protective as our standard feder schilts. The blade is forgiving in the thrust and is intended to be used in normal HEMA training and competition. This model was built to serve fencers of the Fiore style, or fencers who prefer a shorter longsword profile. This sword has a narrowing profile taper that ends in the rev. 2 flattened spatulate tip. The edges are smoothly rounded for durability. The crossguard is exceptionally tough having been hardened and double tempered just as the blade. The grip is comfortably waisted and tightly wrapped in cord that is sealed with resin hardener. It provides a slightly aggresive texture to the cord and feels great in and out of gloves.
Krieger Armory swords are well crafted and fully made in the USA. The high quality steel is well-tempered and even the crossguards and pommel are tempered for durability, unlike the mild steel used by the vast majority of other swordmakers. Krieger offers a 1 year zero hassle free warranty a limited lifetime tune-up (transferrable between owners) Meaning that after a full year, Krieger will replace the blade for only a fraction of the cost of a new sword. The original hilt hardware is re-used and paired with a new replacement blade. If needed, a clean up the hilt parts/ re cord wrap will also be done.
