Books that fencers need! Since 1997

 Why we do it:

"Fencing is not something you write about, sonny!" said legendary Fencing Master Italo Santelli, to Laszlo Szabo, author of Fencing and the Master. Could Santelli have been wrong? Yes -- and since 1997, we've been proving it.

SwordPlay Books was founded  by Steve Khinoy, who has been active in fencing for over fifty years. He has medaled in all three weapons, has coached since 1978, started three high school fencing programs and one college program, and is a co-founder of the US Fencing Hall of Fame. He is a retired professor of medieval literature and is still an active coach and competitor.

 Our mission is simple: to serve the fencing world by making more knowledge accessible -- both by producing and publishing new books and reprinting classics.

We take great pride in our company, our commitment to customer service and in the titles we sell. Our on-line store is designed to provide you with a safe and secure environment to browse our product catalog, and, if you like what you see, to buy and read our books.
