PACO System was born from the wide experience in the practice of historical fencing and from the idea of freeing the hands between assaults, lessons and demonstrations. The knowledge available in terms of treatises, period paintings, archives and historical objects define the not uncommon use of the talabarte to carry a sword in the civilian, academic or military field. The talabarte has always been a complement to the sword, a comfortable and beautiful tool that allowed to carry a weapon without the need to carry it in the hand. The talabartes have not managed to survive until the practice of modern fencing, both in sport and historical fencing, and have been relegated to more recreational contexts. Historically correct replicas of them exist today, but they lack practicality and dynamism in the field of historical fencing.
PACO System reinvents the scabbarb to adapt it to the needs of a modern fencing fencer, using modern materials and construction methods of the XXI century to provide extra functionality to the practice of historical fencing. Its design has taken into account both the quality of the materials and their adaptation and customization to each fencer:
- Comfortable, it allows you to have your hands free during an explanation, at an exhibition or simply between classes or between rounds.
- Dynamic, it allows to draw and unsheathe without the need to aim.
- Versatile, it adapts to any type of weapon, from hand-held swords to sabers to huge hand and half swords.
- Useful, allowing a better conservation of the weapons, by not having to carry them in the hand or leave them on the ground.
