Equipment Guide

Kron uses a wide variety of gear to practice HEMA.  New members don’t have to have to their own gear initially as Kron has loaner-gear for first-timers. However, it is far better to eventually purchase your own equipment so you can practice anywhere and customize your kit to suit your needs.  At the most basic level, every student will need a sword-like object.  We can help you consider many options, and we have the best discount sources for all types of HEMA gear. Please don’t buy anything without checking with us first!
