Sabre — a light cutting and thrusting weapon that uses a valid target area of everything above the waist, except for the hands. The sabre is primarily used to slash, so hits with the side of the blade as well as the tip are scored as valid. Like the foil, this weapon follows the rules of "right of way", and only one fencer can score a hit at a time.
End of Sabre blade is curled or folded over.

The experienced truth about swords
We don't need to pretend we know about swords, daggers and other weapons, we actually use them regularly in combat scenarios and can give honest & truthful advice. If you plan on hanging this sword on the wall you won't need the following but it may be of interest when comparing swords. Our invaluable scoring system comes from experience and not guesswork. We don't need to copy information from any of our less knowledgeable competitors. At Medieval-Fightclub you can be assured that we tell it like it is - no bogus claims to secure a sale. Many other sellers of swords would have you think that every sword in their range is "full tang" and "hand forged". We have the experience it takes to be accurate and therefore here at Medieval-Fightclub you will only get the truth about each and every item we sell. You can trust us and you only need to try us to find that out for yourself. With the best range, the best price, the most truthful & accurate advice - you will never buy from anyone else again.
Why do we feel a combat rating is important with weapons? The short answer is because we know what we are talking about. Medieval Fightclub battle test all the weaponry & armour that comes into our warehouse even when it clearly isn't battle ready we feel it is important to be able to give you an honest view of each item. Please look in the description for the "Combat Readiness Score" & for a simple description of how combat ready our tests show that item to be. This score is given despite appearance and is purely about the function of the sword. Please note all our scoring is out of 10, if you find a potential combat item that has not been scored, then let us know and we will give it a combat test & supply a score as soon as we can.
Tang type - what does it mean?
A sword's tang is a term that describes how a blade is fitted to the handle. The strongest tang type is “Full Tang” and our full tang swords have been forged as part of the blade and then sandwiched between two halves of the handle. Usually you can see the base of the blade edge exposed on the side of the handgrip. The tang should penetrate right through the pommel and be peened over at the end. The most common tang style is called encapsulated or hidden where the blade becomes a thin “rats tail” to fit within the handgrip. While many of the hidden tang swords will have blades that are suitable for combat you could find that over time the hilt may eventually loosen. As with all tools, a sword is only as strong as the weakest part and therefore where possible I would always recommend using a full tang sword for any kind of sword on sword combat from simulated full contact to theatrical. Never USE a push tang sword as the blade is prone to becoming a projectile weapon. WARNING: Not all full tang claims are equal, we can only assume this is because of lack of knowledge. Other suppliers will incorrectly promote "hidden tangs" as "full tang" so please be aware of the truth before perpetuating this mistake.
How are they forged?
With exception to smiths crafting single swords, almost no sword manufacturer uses hand forging techniques. Often, claims of hand forging is pure forgery itself or it shows a lack of knowledge about how modern swords are really made. Our swords are made by hand using state of the art machinery that perfectly measure temperature and mill the shape to produce an exacting result time after time. Even the occasional item like our pattern welded products are made using power hammers. In short, after the shaping has been done, we use ancient techniques with the most modern equipment.
This is what sets us apart from other sellers. Our swords are often tempered, which is a balancing act between hardness and flexibility. Each sword has a different temper which has been adjusted depending on its expected use. We use a variety of high carbon steels that after shaping are re-tempered to an exacting standard. Don't be tricked into thinking that high carbon content and tempering are the same thing as they are not. With good tempering even the poorest steel can be crafted into awe inspiring weapons. It is a complicated subject to explain, however we have written detailed articles on this subject and other articles on swords and armour including how to select the right sword for you. For more info, please ask.
This is a range of items designed for the rigours of combat and especially regular combat training. They are always a proper full tang and will last a long time even with some of the heaviest abuse you can give them. Ordinary swords will not last as long as our practical range. For the best pricing on a sword you want to use every week you will not find better value anywhere.
