Florian Fortner is a rapier fencing Salvator Fabris fanatic. Dedicating every free minute to understanding this great master's system and his subsequent german lineage (e.g. Paschen, Schöffer, Ranis) is his passion. With this fencing style he is performing well at national and international tournaments. Together with Julian Schrattenecker he also pursues a quest of measuring original swords of all types and reproducing them in order to raise the authenticity level of sparring weapons as well as publishing and transcribing newly found treatises.
