The Feder (also Fechtfeder, plural Fechtfedern), is a type of training sword used in fencing competitions of the German Renaissance. The type has existed since at least the 15th century, shown extensively in the fighting manuals of the time, particularly those of Paulus Hector Mair and Joachim Meyer.

The strong blade is perfect for both sparring and training. The tip is about 1cm² thereby the impact is spreaded over a larger area. It is still recommended to cover the tips with a piece of leather or rubber for "blunting" the sword".
