What is the name of the fencing sword

Fencing sword Satzvey, class A

Fencing sword Satzvey, class A

The model with a straight quillons is called Satzvey, named after the medieval moated castle in the Eifel, where Volker Kunkel has held sword fighting and fencing seminars for over twenty years.

The Satzvey model differs optically from its sister sword Nuremberg mainly through the straight crossguard. Both swords have a blade made of forged spring steel, which has been hardened in an oil bath and then tempered. They have a hardness of 50-52 degrees Rockwell. The blade edges are 2 - 2.5 mm thick. The sword has a blade approx. 5 mm thick on the central ridge and is supplied with a rounded, relatively wide tip in order to be admitted to tournaments.

The weapons represent an ideal type of the late medieval long sword, so to speak. In terms of guidance and contact behavior, they largely correspond to the historical originals. Each sword is handcrafted, but all swords have almost the same properties in terms of weight, dimensions, guidance and contact behavior. They represent a successful combination of function and beauty both in the hand and visually. The swords are specially developed for people who have more extensive fencing demands than just wielding a sword that matches the robe. For ambitious fencers who are interested in the late medieval German and Italian art of fencing and are looking for a weapon with which they can appropriately implement the techniques and combinations of the old masters such as Liechtenauer, Thalhoffer, Vadi.
