A proponent of the French school of fencing, Alfred Hutton was a British fencing master that did much to modernize sabre technique as it was fenced at the time. Hutton is acknowledged for breathing new life into the sport of fencing after it had fallen into the category of anachronistic, esoteric activities. The Hutton sabre is crafted after an original with a stainless steel guard & a wire-wrapped imitation sharkskin grip. The tempered blade & hilt of the Hutton sabre are close to the style of the true military sabre. The blade has a 22" fuller and a rounded tip for lightness and safety. This is a good training weapon for learning 19th century saber.
