Meet the Brugensis!

Do you know why it's called that? One of the meanings is "man from Bruges," "with "ensis" meaning "originating from". But "ensis" also means "sword," because of this, you can also translate its name as "sword from Bruges." Thanks for the idea, Bert Gevaert.

In Belgium, there is still the oldest continuously operating fencing club in the world - De Hallebardiers. It is 500 years old!

While currently in restoration treatment, an original feder was rediscovered in a local museum, repeating the swords depicted on the portraits of the kings of this fencing Guild.

Look how long the stick is; it's much longer than 135 cm. You will probably tell us that its length is at least 150 cm. And you will be correct; this feder reaches the length of 154.5 cm. The blade length is 118.7 cm. But this feder, although a training substitute for a sword, is dated to the XVII- XVIII century. Well, the thickness of the tip of the blade is 1mm (measured as 0.5mm, but the original is badly beaten with rust).

It is a very unusual sword and it looks very cool.

We are delighted to recreate this special thing for Hallebardiers and for you.
