awdaniec666, thanks again for this guide. It has been an interesting and thought provoking read. I have found polish sabers baffling as to which are replicas, which are artificially aged fakes, and then there are the Franken-swords. Confirmation that they are produced in small batches is an interesting insight. Further reading on period decoration is a must for me.

I miss living in an area with HEMA being an option. I tried to get a small club together last year during COVID closures of my neighbors but I couldn't get much sustained interest in the subject. I was interested in disarms and infighting and thought training partners through a Club could be the answer to help me work through some ideas. It was a fail, but a fun experiment. I also found out how rusty my skills were.

Thanks again.
