The Hanwei Hutton Sabre is crafted after an original with a stainless steel guard and a wire-wrapped imitation sharkskin grip. The blade and hilt of the Hutton sabre imitate the style of the true military sabre to provide a more realistic military training sword. The blade is somewhat shortened and lightened, with a rounded tip for effective training, and exhibits a somewhat greater flexibility than the live military sword. More information...
A proponent of the French school of fencing, Alfred Hutton was a British fencing master that did much to modernize sabre technique as it was fenced at the time.
Hutton is acknowledged for breathing new life into the sport of fencing after it had fallen into the category of anachronistic, esoteric activities.
