A Story of Sword & Quill
The Odescalchi Federschwert, with its precious schilt, a reverse profile taper like the originals and a very comfortable shaped pommel, behaves as a proper federschwert for everyone approaching the study of this fascinating weapon following the Fechtbuecher. In fact this federschwert offers the perfect cutting potential and a wonderful flexibility that allows to practice safely. It’s not intended as a tournament feder due to the large point.
