Type XII simulator for the practice of the sword / bocle.

To get closer to the sharpened swords, the edges have been refined. This therefore requires careful fencing in order to not damage its edges. The particular shape of the handle is inspired by the handle of tools, studied to have a good grip. Please note, they are not necessarily historical (few sources), but we can hear from the fencers that their grip is pleasant and that it allows better blade control. The engravings are entirely made with a chisel and hammer. The small cross on the pommel is taken from the famous MSI.33, manuscript of sword/bocle practice from the late thirteenth, early fourteenth century.
