Atrim Competition Cutting Longsword - Made in the USA by Gus Trim

Angus (Gus) Trim has partnered with us to make a longsword designed specifically for HEMA longsword cutting practice.

Across the globe practitioners of Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA) are participating in taking their training regimen to the next level, incorporating cutting practice and competition into their routines. Similar to the test cutting practice used in Japanese Martial Arts (Tameshigiri), cutting using medieval style longswords validates the techniques learned through sparring as effective martial techniques.

However this sword is far from being a one trick pony, perfectly acceptable as a typical cruciform style longsword (well, as typical as you could call any sword made by Gus). Gus has simply taken those historical parameters and put together a sword he feels incorporates elements geared to making it an exceptional cutting sword. The blade geometry is hexagonal with a complex distal taper for rigidity in the cut. The edge is a well tuned appleseed geometry, providing enough steel behind the edge for durability while allowing for smooth cutting of softer targets. Most anyone can touch up the edge using a leather strop and a steady hand.

Individually made by Gus himself, these swords will be available in limited quantities.
