This is one of the best bladed weapons in the Sword class B 

This weapon is made by of one of the best swordsmiths in Czechia - Mr. Pavel Moc. His bladed weapons are generally an "artistic license" of historical originals. They are the result of decades-long-experience and discussions with historians, swordsmen and colleagues in the industry. If the replica does not directly correspond to the preserved original, it is based on contemporary iconography, illuminations and its final form is a "well informed stylization".

Steel

The blade is made of spring steel for dynamic strain CSN 14260 (DIN 54SiCr6, GOST 60S2CHA) or CSN 15260 (50CrV4 DIN 1.8159). The steel is heated to 820-860° C and then immersed into oil. The steel is then tempered at 540-680° C according to the prescribed technical standards in computer-controlled-ovens. The first kind of steel has a slightly higher elasticity, the second one can be slightly more hardened. Both types of steel are oil-quenched and tempered to a hardness of 48.5 +/- 2 HRc.

Warranty

This weapon is designed for experienced fencers who prefer light swords with flexible blades and who use rather their head than force in sword combats. The anti-break-warranty for the blade refers only to material defects. The warranty does not cover natural wear of the blade and the grip. The guard is riveted (not soldered) to the blade. It may happen that the rivet connection gets loosened after some time and the sword begins to rattle during combat. This is a sign of wear that does not affect the function of the sword, does not diminish its quality or worsen the safety of the swordsman.

I bought this sword to use for HEMA and possibly HMB style combat. This was the second Pavel Moc I bought after buying my first one a Lichtenauer also purchased from Outfit 4 Events. I bought the Lichtenauer with the intention of sharpening it but was impressed with the edge thickness and temper and wanted another Pavel Moc to use for stage combat and or HEMA. This English/ French style longsword which is based on an actual sword found in the Wallace Collection in England is a very well made blade. The edges were a little thinner than advertised as it does go to less than 2 mm around the half way to last third of the blade. Not far off from what is advertised but I don't think this would be a good sword for HMB. To be fair, this sword like all Pavel Moc swords listed on this site have a disclaimer that they are meant for technical fencing which I believe translates to use for HEMA not HMB, :D. For HEMA I believe this sword will do okay. The temper is good but I did test this sword against an HMB HEMA cross over long sword I own from Victor B and the edge did okay. However against my thicker edged Wulflund longsword meant for HMB the edges did take more damage than I would like. To be clear, the blade is well tempered and the edges were just nicked but it is clear this sword isn't meant to used in HMB. For sport fencing this sword has edges that should be thick enough to stand up to feders and longswords meant for HEMA style fencing. The flex on this sword makes it safe for sparring. It isn't overly flexible it is flex safe so if you stab your training partner with a rubber blunt on the tip of the sword, it will bend safely and return to true without causing harm to your sparring partner. I also think that if sharpened this sword would cut well. In retrospect, for my intended purpose, I should have spent the extra 200 euros or so for a Pavel Moc with a tournament blade as that would be much closer to what I want since his tournament swords have thicker edges for sparring. For what this sword is, as a replica of the English Longsword from the Wallace Collection that can also be used as a blunt for HEMA, it is very good and nice looking. Hilt is nice and tight, well peened, excellent construction. It also handles very well.
