Simulator for the practice of the XII-XIIIth century sword and shield.

The pommel and crossguard are made of old iron, the very heterogeneous and imperfect structure of this old wrought iron has been revealed with an acid attack.

The blade length for a one-handed sword as well as its very forward-facing balance makes it a complicated simulator to handle.
