A number of students spent the day in London at the Wallace Collection yesterday, getting a special chance to handle some antique swords and feel how they compare to the ones we use for sparring and training.

We were joined by a couple of guests:  Peter Smallridge, instructor at KDF Tonbridge, and swordsmith Marco Danelli of Danelli Armouries for a handling session of several original swords from the collection, and two original prints of Capoferro and Agrippa.

The session was introduced by head curator of Arms & Armour, Tobias Capwell, who also gave a brief tour of the weapons galleries.

It was an amazing day and we are grateful to all at the Wallace Collection who took time out of their day to host us.
