Although sickle is still a niche weapon in HEMA, it has been rapidly gaining on popularity. I developed this training weapon for myself since there where no products out there living up to my high expectations. Since I know there are many fencers out there valuing quality I now offer them to sickle enthusiasts all over the world, to go through plays of the German fencing master, Paulus Hector Mair.
The sickle’s blades are CNC-machined out of high-strength aluminum also used in aircraft and therefore a lot more durable than prevalent polymer Sickles. This also allows for using them as a left hand dagger replacement with other aluminium fencing gear. Going against steel weapons is explicitly advised against though.
The handle is made of beautiful cross cut ash wood so the grain really pops. It’s pinned with brass to give nice golden colour accents. The blade is sand blastet for a prestine matt finish wich also enhances bind feel. On the inside, the blade protrudes to add protection to your fingers and to prevent your hand from sliding.
