Solothurn HEMA Fechtschwert

The great discovery is upon us!

Solothurn HEMA Fechtschwert - the source on modern practice swords.

"Sporty" feders have a source?! Now, they have!

The Museum Altes Zeughaus in Solothurn Switzerland holds a very well-preserved Fechtschwert, which shows clear signs of regular use in training.

The Solothurn HEMA Fechtschwert version is built to the exact original specifications (including full blade profile, including distal taper, and mass distribution) for those who want to more closely experience the quite different characteristics and dynamics of the originals in their training.

About the Solothurn HEMA Fechtschwert :

  • The original Fechtschwert is currently on display in the Special Exhibition “Alarm !”, On the culture, possession, and use of weapons in the late medieval city (15 October 2022 - 29 May 2023).
  • As curator for the exhibition, Dr. Daniel Jaquet wanted to have an exact replica of the Fechtschwert available beside the original, that the visiting public could handle. He approached Antony Rischard, with whom he has already worked on several interactive museum displays in Minsk (2019) and Morges (2020 & 2021), to source the reproduction and design the interactive display.
  • The museum replica was made by Kvetun Armoury, based on Daniel Jaquet’s photos and precise measurements of the original. Anthony Rischard and Kvetun, with Dr. Jaquet’s encouragement, decided that this project offered an excellent opportunity for the HEMA community: a production version, following the exact original specifications, for HEMA practice.

With various current logistics issues and war-driven crises in our region (we are sitting in Georgia between Russia and Israel) we are doing our best in "survival mode.

We are deeply appreciative of you, our stoic clients, for enduring an unusual 3-5 month long wait for our products.

Thank you very much for your patience, understanding, and support! We believe that this situation will become better soon and we'll be able to get back to the 2 month queue that had previously been the norm.
