It is a great honour for us to work together with one of the best swordsmiths in Czechia - Mr. Pavel Moc. We took pains to talk this rare and very modest person into introducing himself to the public.
Pavel Moc was born on February 22, 1973. He did not complete the study of the history of Christian art at the Charles University in Prague. For 6 years he worked in the Czech Radio. As an autodidact, he learned the knowledge and techniques of historical metalworking handicrafts. Since 1997 he works as a professional swordsmith. His specialization are European cutting and thrusting weapons of the 10th to 16th centuries, especially the longswords and the so-called fechtfeder. He works closely with the HEMA alliance and several fencing schools from all over the world. Occasionally he participates in interdisciplinary projects (such as construction and production of historical watch machines, special mechanical elements of forging monumental objects, etc.). He replicated and reconstructs weapons for trade exhibitions. His workshop produces swords for the Pontifical Swiss Guard in Vatican.
For him, lasting love is the study of the history and material culture of the Transalpine Renaissance. As a founding member he worked for 10 years in the ensemble of the Thalia award winner doc. Eva Kröschl, in which he devoted himself to the instructed interpretation of the dances of the Italian Quattrocent and the Renaissance under Rudolf II.
Pavel Moc loves genuine champagne, is married and has 3 children. He lives with his family in Kutna Hora. In the present he drives a Ford Tourneo Custom.
The swords of Pavel Moc are the "elite" among weapons offered at Outfit4Events. Current collection of his exclusive and very precisely processed weapons can be found here.
