Why Black Fencer wasters?

Short answer: Because we can complement the use of steel swords with a tool that let us fight with more intention and power without increasing danger, and keeping close to the steel behavior.

There are a variety of technical properties that make LSW a great Historical Fencing training tool.


 

-Durability

Unlike other synthetic materials, nylon is very resistant when get hit with another nylon waster, and it would be safe to affirm that, with minimal maintenance, it can lasts for a lot of years.

 -Safety

The steel sword is the most reliable tool for Historical Fencing training, but it is also the most dangerous one. With a nylon tool, the impact surface is greater, so the damage is greatly reduced. This quality let us to fight with more intent and power without the implicit danger of injury of the steel sword.

 -Features

Most of other synthetic wasters in the market, currently are too much light, with inadequate balance, non historical morphologies, uncomfortable parts and guards who take apart sometimes.

-STEEL GUARD (THROUGH RICASSO)

Unlike other synthetic waster guards, Like Steel Waster guards are designed to let you handle this tool without uncomfortable parts, so you are able to use your thumb far from the handle, and other historical hand positions, without obstruct your fingers. This guard is really hard and durable.

-PROTECTION PIECES FOR THE ENDING GUARD SIDES

Added protection pieces to the ending points of the steel guard, permanently attached so they can't come off the guard, to make them safer.

-PEAR AND DISC STEEL POMMELS

Historically shaped pommels, balancing the overall waster, and very comfortable to the handling. The pommels are now attached permanently with a slotted pin, so it is impossible for the pommel to turn around himself or even come off the handle, creating a solid, comfortable and quality structure.

 -HISTORICAL WEIGHT AND BALANCE

Those new waster designs have been made with special attention to the balance and weight distribution, seeking for a real sword mass distribution, a key aspect not fully achieved by other waster sellers.

-BLADE SLIDING

Nylon has a low friction coefficient, so it is very close to the steel performance when blades are crossed.

-MINIMAL BOUNCING BETWEEN BLADES

With a flexible performance, nylon doesn't bounce when the blade hits the opponent's blade, as it happens with steel swords.

--LAST NOTE --

¡This is not steel! Steel is the way to follow to practice this martial art. Nylon waster is the only tool that, not being steel, can help us to progress in this art. It allows a more powerful and safer training as well as amusing handling, and more important, it is an economic tool with extraordinary performance.

In Sala de Armas El Batallador it is considered an official tool, together with the steel, for training with longsword and sword & buckler, even tournaments.

 

WHY WE DON'T HAVE COLOUR OPTIONS?

Because the dyeing which is used for changing colour of nylon modifies the qualities of this material, and we are looking for the best quality and performance, over aesthetics.
