Stage Combat / HEMA / SCA C&T arming sword

I've had a lot of requests for more flexible arming swords suitable for stage combat, HEMA, and for fencing with SCA Cut and Thrust (and similar) rulesets. So here we are- this arming sword is one of the most production-flexible I've ever seen - so that your actors will be less likely to kill each other; for HEMA sword and buckler fighters, and so that SCA C&T fighters have an arming sword that meets the required flex tests.

(Digression on the SCA flex test: put the sword down at the end of a table or workbench with the hilt supported/weighed down and the full length of the blade flying free. Place a six ounce weight at the end of the sword and measure the deflection between weighted and unweighted. Swords that flex 1/2" are suitable for single combats, swords that flex 1" are suitable for melee combat. These arming swords deflect about 3/4")

The pommel is peened (see end view pic above) to a sturdy tang, the grip is wood core with a sewn leather wrap. The blade edges are dulled to 2mm wide. This is about as safe and flexible as you're going to get with a steel sword, and/so it's suitable for light contact with thick clothing and padding (and control!) Matching scabbard included.
