Two Handed Rapier Issue Clarification from KM of Fence

Originally posted on the East Kingdom Gazette Tuesday, October 13, 2015 in regards to the changes of two handed rapier rules.

Greetings to the Kingdom of the East!
Since the publication of the new two handed rapier rules I have received some questions regarding the blade/handle length requirements.  I will attempt to offer some clarification.
I, as Kingdom Rapier Marshal, am specifically empowered to allow weapons that do not meet the standard but still pass the Flex Test.  Speaking specifically of the Hanwei feder, it is my understanding that the handle is just about an inch too long for the 2 Hander standard.  These specific weapons are allowed under that discretionary power.  Any other 2 hander that does not meet the published standard must be cleared through myself, my Kingdom Deputy, or one of my Regional Deputies.
I hope this clarification helps, and I am always here if anyone has any further questions.  Please feel free to contact me through the KRM link on the EK Website under Officers.
In Service,
Master Frasier MacLeod, KRM, East
