Mark V Feder Blade

Our Mark V Feder Blade is our flagship model HEMA tourney grade blade. It features a hand ground flat taper that is 2″ wide at the schilt and .5″ at the tip. The schilt is a historically documented wide shoulder at the forte of the blade that aids in binds and keeps the opponent’s blade farther from your hands in a tight bind. Our blades are made from high quality 5160 spring steel bar stock tempered to the optimal point where maximum toughness & durability meets hardness, 50 Rockwell C. These blades have a bright finish and the flex is centered in the tip third of the blade. The Mark V Feder Blade is our finest blade meant specifically for SCA HEMA, C&T and WMA long sword sparring and tourney grade combat.

These blades are offered in a blade lengths of 38″ measured from the tang shoulder to the tip. We offer these blades with grade 8, M8x1.25 thread.
