Medieval Art and Wood Craft are well priced and I believe they may well do MS i.33 so know their product.
We're buying some soon (to go with the nylon ones we're getting elsewhere).

I'll point you to their FaceBook page on FaceBook.

Hi,

The swords are now available from http://www.historicarts.co.uk/martial_arts.htm

The link posted above by Dave is my old website. I've only got it up to point people at the new one.
I am a HEMA instructor and have studied MSI.33 a bit, but mainly the liechtenauer tradition. I have handled many original swords from several periods including anglo-saxon, medieval and post medieval. I try to get as close as I can in handling to the originals, but obviously this is a quest without end. All the wasters are made by me, by hand and usually to order. If you are after "medieval" type handling, or "backsword" type handling from a single hander, I can accommodate
