    Hi Federico, my little knowledge of the sources tells me that the arming sword was almost always used with bucklers or shields. Do you know any source for arming swords and no shield or buckler?

    I love both of your arming sword videos. I just bought a sparring arming sword to start my journey into HEMA, and your videos are perfect to help me practice and learn the guards for one-handed swords. Thank you so much, I can't wait to see more videos I can learn from. 🙂

    Ciao amico! Great video and a great series, I'm really into arming swords now, I already train Fiore's Longsword but I want some variation, and a short sword is a great weapon to start. Would you have some reference about one handed swords and Shields? Like Heater shields, not bucklers.

    Federico, is it ok to apply the technique of Marozzo to the regular old arming sword, or will it only work specifically with a side-sword? Also, I know that "side-sword" can be a tricky term because some people don't even think there is any real difference between it and the arming sword. But to use the Bolognese style of swordplay, does one need the more complex hilt with finger ring, etc., or can you just as easily use a simple cross-hilted arming sword?

    One cirticism I have of using Oakeshott too much is that it tells you what the sword looks like, not what it feels like, and that can often be deceptive. There are some swords with wide blades that look like choppers, but once you have them in hand, you find out they are nimble and much better for thrusting, and vice versa. This also goes for sabers, some people will tell you that a hatchet point on a magyar sabre means it's for horseback cuts, but from what I've seen, there are some that are indeed choppers and others that are quite nimble. The reverse applies to almond point sabres, too.

    The sabers are especially relevant if you are interested specifically in Italian swordsmanship of the period, as opposed to generic 'western' – Italians did a lot of fighting with, for and against Hungary, and that means not only magyar sabers, but also cuman and mongol mercenaries.

    I think you can put together types XV and XVIII. Types XVIII are, after all, simply a type XV with a more gradual profile taper. In fact, some swords can be hard to judge whether they are XV or XVIII. And you do show some key examples of Type XVIII in the video.
