Tinker Longsword Blunt, Class A

Replacement blades are available for all swords in the series; a key feature of Tinker's designs is the interchangeability of blades within each pair of swords with the exception of the Viking, allowing the user to purchase one complete sword and a spare blade to enjoy both versions. The Longswords, Bastard Swords and Early Medieval Swords all feature Tinker's recessed sleeve nut mounting system, providing secure hilt retention, tightening and easy blade exchange using the Allen wrench provided.

Tinker Longsword Blunt, Class A

Michael 'Tinker' Pearce has designed a series of swords made by Hanwei in 5160 steel, which emphasise authenticity, functionality and performance. To satisfy the sparring and cutting needs of Western Martial Artists, each of the 7 styles are made in live (sharp) and sparring (blunt) versions and each sword has outstanding handling characteristics. The carefully controlled heat-treating of 5160 steel (Tinker's blade steel of choice) by the marquenching process produces an excellent combination of toughness and flexibility at a hardness of HRC 50-52, allowing for superior edge retention on the sharps, anti burr and tip-flexing safety features on the blunts.

The Tinker Longswords (Oakeshott Type XVIIIa) provide the WMA practitioner with a fast, well-balanced pair of swords that will perform beautifully in skilled hands. The sparring blunts feature a longer fuller to balance the thicker edges and a flattened tip section to provide the flexibility required for safety. The flattened scent-stopper pommel (type T-1) forms a natural extension of the double-hand grip and the square section guard (Type 2) provides solid security. The hardwood-cored grip is leather-over-cord wrapped, with steel fittings. Leather covered scabbard is included.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

My glove size is 9. What size of gauntlets should I order if I want to wear padded leather gloves inside?

If you want to wear un-padded leather gloves in the gauntlets, order both in the same size (in your case size 9). With padded leather gloves we recommend to order the gauntlets always one size higher (so in your case 10). If you discover that the goods do not fit after receiving it, you can exchange it for free. You only pay the shipping costs.
