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 ordered this sword as a blunt but sharpened the sword myself. This sword did come with 2.5mm to 3mm edges so if you are reading this and want this as a sharp you may be better off buying the sharp version. I have large belt sanders and am very good at this, plus I didn't want to wait three to four months for a new sharp when the blunt was in stock at the time. With that disclaimer, this sword is amazing. The quality of the fittings as well as the secure mounting of them to the blade is outstanding. The sword is gigantic, almost true two hander length but it belittles it weight because the point of balance is just an inch or so ahead of the hilt. This sword is definitely a knightly thrust centric sword meant to be used with plate armor. The sword flows well from the common German long sword guards such as plough to ox, to roof etc. The only negative I have is the blade is a bit more flexible than I would like. It's not like a fishing reel, just a little more flex than what I expected. This sword was designed to be used for sparing as a blunt so I understand. I can't comment on it for that use of safe sparring but, properly sharpened this sword will cut and thrust through medium targets such as palm tree branches and leaves without issue. It's extremely high quality and compares well to much more expensive swords.
