Raven Studios  

 Training Swords -  European (Medieval / Renaissance)

Wasters
 
Raven Studios European wasters are designed to withstand the rigors of free-sparring. I feel it is important that each training weapon mimic a real weapons performance and feel as closely as possible, therefore these hardwood practice wasters are constructed with the following qualities:
  • Patterned after real swords. I strive to maintain historical accuracy.
  • The blades are made from Hickory. Information about hardwood 
  • The blades (unless otherwise noted) have a diamond shaped cross section for strength and performance, and the edges are rounded for durability.
  • The blades are made with a distal and profile taper to help maintain proper balance and feel.
  • The blades are made with a ricasso for added strength.
  • The guards are locked into the blades and can not slide or loosen.
  • The blades have a full tang and the handles are constructed with laminated hardwood slabs.
  • The handle is oval shaped for maximum comfort and control.
  • The hilt is made from your choice of Hickory, Jatoba, or Purple Heart.
  • Finished with a linseed and tung oil blend which penetrates into the wood to create a tough and durable surface.

 Custom Wasters

If you would like one of the standard swords (seen below) with your own special specifications; hilt design, blade thickness or taper, point of balance etc., or you'd like a type of sword not found in this catalog, supply a written description with photos or drawings and I'll let you know if it's something I can do for you.

Additional charges may apply for custom training items so please contact ravenstudios@little-raven.com for a quote.

(No fantasy or cartoon sword requests please. R.S. wasters are not toys, they are designed for serious martial arts training.)
