Renaissance side sword for show fight SK-B incl. scabbard
The side sword (literally translated from the Italian Spada da Lato) was a military sword of the Renaissance (16th/17th century), which also gained great popularity among the civilian population due to its relatively low weight and agility. In contrast to the rapier, which was popular at the same time, it had the advantage that it was not only an efficient cutting weapon but could also serve as a thrusting weapon. Lateral swords were popular weapons for fighting with sword and buckler. This sword is based on a German model and has excellent balance characteristics, with a buckle vessel that provides excellent hand protection. Sparring with the side sword, whether in sword/buckler or sword/dagger combination, enjoys increasing popularity in the ranks of the various Renaissance re-enactment groups.

general warranty for swords
Our show combat weapons are subject to the legal warranty of two years like all other goods. However, it should be noted that the customer is responsible for providing evidence of defects (e.g. material defects) that were already present at the time of purchase and have not been claimed within 6 months. Complaints after 6 months are therefore often difficult and unfortunate for both sides. An exhibition sword is naturally an object of wear and tear. Even the best and most expensive exhibition sword becomes chipped after heavy use, the parry bar can become wobbly and the grip can become loose. This is normal, because strong forces act on the material. Even with these blades the unlikely case can occur that they break if they are already weakened by several and deep embrasures. These are therefore usually not justified reasons for complaint but normal wear and tear. A used show sword shows signs of use after use.
