About Us

SKA SwordPlay Books was founded in 1997 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. In his so-called real life, he was a professor of medieval literature.

Steve was frustrated at the relative scarcity of good books about fencing and decided to do something about it. The result was SKA SwordPlay Books.

Our mission is simple: to serve the fencing world both by producing and publishing new books and reprinting fencing classics. We take great pride in our company, our commitment to customer service and in the titles we sell. Our online 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.3939 Victory Boulevard
