Polish Sabers Overview (For Purchase)

Polish Trainers
This thread is stickyed and locked so it will be just the gear, where to get it from, and pictures. If you have something to add, just PM me! I want to keep this thread clutter free. Goods are in alphabetical order by maker. Many of the swords can be customized.

Weights are around 1.5-2 lbs, blade length is around 31 inches, curvature varies, the point of balance is around 6 inches from the the guard, and guards can be historical, or more modern for better hand protection. Contact the seller for exact details and any custom work you may want done.

Good not only for Polish saber, but really any, heavier, curved saber work, be it Eastern European, Napoleonic, Middle Eastern and so on.
