*** “I stumbled upon your website and enjoyed browsing it. I’m glad to see you are still at it. If I get back to the east coast I hope you’ll let me visit your collection someday. (…) I will check back to your site regularly.” Rocky Herron

*** “Nice blog! Thanks for sharing from your collection. These tidbits that you are feeding us are invaluable for getting more of a feel of past fencing practice. Often, the items you post are most unexpected, and do a good job of pointing out how much more there is to learn about the practice of fencing in past times.” Matt Galas / Mons, Belgium

  1. Hi, Chris!

    Nice blog! Thanks for sharing from your collection. These tidbits that you are feeding us are invaluable for getting more of a feel of past fencing practice. Often, the items you post are most unexpected, and do a good job of pointing out how much more there is to learn about the practice of fencing in past times.

    Regards,

  2. Thanks, Chris, for your interesting work throughout the years toward restoration of Fencing as a true classical martial art. Keep up the good work.

  3. Hello!

    I must tell you my complete admiration for the stuff you provide here… Really for a enthusiast like me it’s a real great interest to read it all every week!

    As I’m a fencer myself, mainly on smallsword for now after some rapier years, and a amateur of craftmanship,I plan to recreate a 19th century dueling sword case. So, if you can post on the next weeks some dueling sword of the period it will be 1- fun 2- interesting 3- practical (at least for me).

    So, thanks and please continue!!!

    Thanks for the kind words. I pledge to upload a case of dueling smallswords by Monday.

  5. Lieber Herr Amberger,

    ‘Meister Google’ führte mich auf dieses hochinteressante Blog, in dem ich nun mit Freude und Interesse lesen durfte.
    Sogleich ‘gebookmarkt’, selbstverständlich.
    Persönlich bin ich sehr interesseirt an allem, was mit deutschem Säbelfechten der Kaiserzeit zu tun hat, eine Fechtweise die ich auch in meiner Fechtschule lehre.

    mit Fechtergruß

    Wilkommen daheim. Werd’ sehn, was sich zum deutschen Säbelfechten auftun läßt!

  7. This is a marvellous place – one of the best sites on the web for sure!😉
    I’m sure to return again many times! Best regards and many thanks for both your research and your sense of humour.

    Beste Grüße,

  8. I was so pleased to find this site. I bought your book, Secret History of the Sword when I first started fencing and it is now well thumbed and battered. your analysis of the Nadi duel still comes up regularly in post-piste pub conversations. I didn’t realise you were still publishing anywhere, but i came across the blog whilst looking for Early Modern History sites. Glad to see your combination of style and erudition, backed up with your pukka swordsman’s background is still alice and well. Please call in at the Eagle Clawed Wolfe if you are in the mood for some more prosiac Early modern History.
