Sharp Longsword designed by Michael "Tinker" Pearce

Our Tinker Longswords (Oakeshott Type XVIIIa) provide the WMA practitioner with a fast, well-balanced pair of swords that will perform beautifully in skilled hands. The semi-fullered sharp blades exhibit a quick profile taper with a diamond section out to the tip, providing the necessary stiffness for the cutting stroke. The flattened scent-stopper pommel (Type T-1) forms a natural extension of the double-hand grip and the square-section guard provides solid security.What others are saying about the Tinker Pearce Longswords:

 

"I had the opportunity to handle the prototype Tinker Pearce Line Longswords by CAS/Hanwei, and they are beautiful, well-balanced, quick-handling swords at an excellent price. The sharp and blunt versions handle almost identically in cuts, thrusts, and quick posta (guard) transitions. These promise to be the mid-priced training weapon of choice for longsword studies." Sean Hayes, Maestro d`armi,Northwest Fencing Academy and University of Oregon.

 

Made by Hanwei.
