Fencing like a Captain of Venture

The XIX Early Sidesword, with its parallel profile taper, the fullered section and the finger ring is a very fine example of a progenitor of what the sword will be by the end of the 15th century, that is to say a proper sidesword. Despite metropolitan legends, the finger rings already appear in the mid 14th c., and they are found on two handed swords and baselard swords too. The XIX Early Sidesword is a sport version of the historical one, simplified and designed specifically for HEMA.
