Ceremonial Sword Use and Safety
  • Swords and sabres are intended for ceremonial use only.
  • Blade tips are relatively sharp; exercise care during use.
  • The blades are not designed for impact and "fighting." While forged, tempered, and designed for flexibility and durability, ceremonial blades lack the toughness to withstand the heavy impact of "blade-to-blade" contact.
  • Do not use ceremonial swords for re-enactment fighting.
  • Horseplay may result in damage to the sword or, worse yet, personal injury.
  • Sword and sabre manual of arms is a developed and practiced skill. Do not be flamboyant when handling a drawn sword.
  • Children tend to have a natural fascination with swords and often mistake a ceremonial sword for a weapon. Supervise children closely and know that the misuse of a sword is dangerous.
