I had bought this Kovex Ars longsword to use for HEMA and for armored combat. I I only put it through one fencing session so far in HEMA. The statistics mentioned on this site are fairly accurate. I ordered the blunt version. The site said 2 to 3 mm edges. The edges from the forge are exactly 2mm which is technically true. I do wish the blade had thicker edges. The edges to take some dings since they are a little thin from fencing. They do polish out fairly well with my 1x30 belt sander. A stone and sand paper could polish them out to but, sander is faster. Sword is very well made, it feels like a proper long sword. The weight of 1.8 kg blunt or just under 4 pounds is a little heavy but not overly so and not outside the historic weight range of a similar longsword for war. The flex is very good. I put a longsword blunt on the tip and glued it with a brass bullet casing underneath it to thrust safely. It's not overly flexible but, it is a good amount of flex. Like the other reviewer it would be nice if a rolled tip and thicker edges were an option. I don't mind using a bullet casing with a rubber longsword blunt on the tip, it's just a bit extra work. The handling is fantastic. It's a bit on the heavy side compared most feders or longsword blunts but not overly so. The temper and heat treat seem good as the blade does return to true after bending and the edge damage, despite being thin, isn't too bad. I only did spar with it once. I am happy I got it. It's a very good handling sword. Handle is just right for clamshell gauntlets either steel or SPES Hema style gauntlets. Your opponent will want to wear some kind of forearm protection though. It does hit heavier than most feders. I really like it over all and am tempted to buy the sharp version also. Again just wish it had thicker edges and a rolled tip. Excellent sword otherwise.

Two things I will point out here before I review the sword : 1 : I use the sword for HEMA practices, which includes a lot of blade contact and heavy sparring. 2 : I had my sword extended to around 130cm (similar to a feder) so that I can use big sparring gloves and still have a lot of space on the handle. I bought this sword in the beginning of 2014, and it has been used extensively throughout the years, all from simple technique drills to heavy free sparring. The sword is an absolute beauty to handle. The point of balance (PoB) is around 2cm away from the guard, so it is very agile to use, and it's very safe for my sparring partners as the energy of the blows are reduced due to the PoB. The blade has no damage to it after three years (small nicks on the edge), and the flexibility is excellently balanced between stiffness with a proper flex during thrusts. There is no rattling from the guard, and the leather wrapping is still solidly applied to the handle. Maintenance of the sword is done by filing down edgy nicks on the edge and swiping the blade with sandpaper and apply oil on it, and it doesn't take a lot of time. There are two small things which I will point out. 1 : The quillons was slightly bent backwards due to some hard hits. This was fixed by heating the quillons with a blowtorch and bend them back. I think that this can be avoided by forging a slightly thicker guard or by adding more metal at the guard where it's the thinnest. 2 : It would be a very good idea for the fine people at Wellcrafted s.r.o. to add an extra blade tip option for those who will use the swords in HEMA. By having the option for all forged swords to have a rolled tip or a flat/thick tip for safety, it would give these sword a good chance to be used in international HEMA gatherings. I heartily recommend this sword for anyone who will have an excellent high-quality longsword for a very good price.
