Just noticed a link to this guy's site - anybody have any experience of his stuff? I notice that he does specialised HEMA weapons, including sabres.

Don't know about his sabres, but his single handers and longswords are a bit on the stiff and heavy side.

Useful to know, thanks. What is the quality like otherwise? Might it be worth trying to encourage him to make them lighter?

The quality is superb, those things could withstand reenactors without a problem, but that's mostly due to the construction (stiff, fat & heavy)
As for the separate HEMA line, I have no experience with those, just 2 one-handers and a longsword.
Try contacting him, see what he says. I know we contacted him 3-4 years ago about some messer prototypes, but I have no memory of how that went.

FYI -

Let me introduce myself!
I'm Viktor Berbekucz, Swordsmith from Hungary.

I will participate at the event in England: www.nlhf.co.uk, with my weapons.

I make weapons for the HEMA fencing, and other battle-ready swords, axes etc.
I'm member of one hungarian HEMA Group, so I practice the historical fencing too.

I made a prototype of feder for a HEMA Group in Vienna (www.schwertkampfturnier.at). They wanted a feder, which is better than Hanwei swords.
They are very satisfied with my swords.

If you are interested, please visit my site (www.berbekuczviktor.hu), and my stand in the Event in England (November 10-11.).

All the best!

Looks a bit rat-taily, though...

EDIT: Oddly, his rapier blade seems to have a full tang:

Might be worth a look. I'm happier with the sabre prototypes I have in transit though thanks.

Think we're gonna go anyway. They have a sword tournament which should be fun to watch.

I'm doing both TORM and this new market, so will try and remember to check this out.

Ty, going by previous tournaments at these things, I'd save yourself the pain, it'll only be re-enactment fighting, nothing fun to watch.

I'll possibly go Friday (depending how long I spend at TORM), but if previous years are anything to go by (for TORM at least), I'll possibly also go Sat.

Had a handling of his longsword with interchangeable short blade.

the example I got to hold had the forward rotational node in front of the tip. So I can't say I favor it in that regard.
else they looked ok.
Looking forward to hear about others take on them.

Scratch that. I'll be there sat. It's not open on Friday.

Ok so I went to the NLHF yesterday and had a look at his swords I looked at his arming and longsword

The single hander first

It weighed about 1kg which felt just right in my hand with a pob 5-6 cm from the guard. The blade length was about 60cm long, the whole sword was well finished and well made and with a price tag of £104 it's was well worth it and has been added to my Christmas list.

The longsword

It weighed 1.5kg roughly and I thought that was a good weight for it pob again around 5-6 cm from the guard maybe slightly more. The blade length I thought was a bit short not much more than the arming sword maybe it would be better as a hand and half sword. The hilt was long enough to comfortably fit both hands on even with bulky gloves. Again well made and finished. I'd say a welcome addition the the sword making community

Hope this helps
