the Albion I:33 was more bow like flexing along it's entire length last time I checked them out.

This blade is flexing 16cm down from the tip.
the total blade length is 80,5cm.

Price tag €220 If remember correctly.

Hi Guys,

Well this is almost akward, me writing about Peter's swords. He's my closest friend and we founded historical longsword fencing in Hungary pretty much ourselves with the help of some other friendly fellows.

What I can say about his works is, that he is well over a few thousand finished swords, all hand made to different degrees (pear-shaped pommels are usually machine turned, for example). Our group measures over 200 and everyone is equipped with his weapons, there were no real issues in the past 9 or so years. I think he made well over a thousand different weapons, just to our group.

What's the best about him and his business, is his friendly art, his gentlemanly approach and he sometimes behaves as if he wouldn't want to make money with his sowrdsmaking at all :) He lives a discreet life and is truly the man you would imagine as a modern swordsmaker with all the historical attributes. I tend to think of him like the "spirit polisher" from the Musashi books who not only tends to your swords but also to something else, if you listen. Might sound strange, but then again, that's how I see this. I told you it's gonna be akward. :)

Sooo anyway, here's the new homepage: http://regenyei.sg18.net/
And you can reach him under: regenyeipeter at gmail.com
He always answers, might take a few days, for he needs to translate it first with one of his aides. That's one flaw he has, not really speaking english. If you met him in person, you surely have the impression that he speaks at least 4 languages all at once, but be patient for he has help in emails. Takes a while.

Great to see a new website up and great to see the newest swords he's been making! I loved the one-handed arming sword feder hybrid he had in Dijon.

Anyone have experience with his 'rapier'? With a blade on the shorter side, it looks like it would make a nice side sword fro Bolognese.

His Bolognese sword look nice but I fancy a bit more complex hand protection for freeplay.

Cheers,
Dan.

I know Szab has one of his rapiers.
The sidesword blades are lovely - remember that Peter makes everything to spec that you want, so you can have whatever blade you want with whatever hilt. I believe Ilkka is using sideswords made by Peter.

Another highly positive review for the Talented Mr. Regenyei:-

Ordered one of these: http://www.regenyei.sg18.net/imagesB/Vivokardok191.html (Custom Longsword XIX)

He has refused to accept payment until it was received, and produced it ahead of when he promised. The sword itself - despite having handmade fittings - was both very reasonably priced and indistinguishable from the version on his website. It bends in the right places, and so far seems sturdily put together. Bravo!

I should add that after several years of use in SG1 we have had two Regenyei feders have their rolled tips snap off (one at the roll and one a couple of inches below). But as far as I'm aware we have not had any other breakages or technical problems with them. The sabres in particular are taking a very heavy and regular battering and are all standing up well so far.

One broke in the roll (probably due to being caught when inserting or removing it from a bag), the other broke at a point where it had bent previously.
