Eisen Pferd “Iron Horse” Blunt Training Sword

Great News! The Eisen Pferd "Iron Horse" Blunt Training Sword is now available for sale! If you've been waiting for a Longpoint tournament approved blunt training sword that's exceptionally well balanced, easy to handle, extremely durable and looks great, wait no more!


The Eisen Pferd is similar to the Arbeitspferd in length at 50 inches (127 cm) total length with a 12.25 inch (31.1 cm) handle and a 37.75 inch (95.9 cm) blade. The blade and guard are both made with Shock Seven Steel, a carbon steel with 125 foot pounds of shock resistance, which allows it to be very durable!

The same great lobe tip as the Arbeitspferd feder keeps it safe and the pommel nut allows the handle to stay tight to the sword after hundreds of blows and still let the handle be replaced if necessary.

The handle is made of Ipe (pronounced “ee-pay”) from FSC approved sources. Ipe is a Brazilian hardwood with a Jenka Harness rating of 3,510 lbf (15,620 N); it has the same burn rating as concrete. The handle is wrapped and covered with stitched-on veg tanned leather or a braided cord (your choice). Veg tanned leather is better for the environment, provides superior grip, and is able to be dyed multiple colors so you can customize the color of your sword handle. This type of leather is also traditionally used for longswords and other medieval weapons.

The Eisen Pferd is designed to be easy to handle, well balanced, and able to withstand the demands of tournament use or training.
