This Xtreme Synthetic Sparring Longsword Black Blade has been developed by historical European martial arts (HEMA) practitioners for that very use. It behaves like a real steel sword while offering far greater safety than most steel weapons typically offer. This sword is designed with training in mind and has been crafted to feature enhanced durability, on par with what a swordsman would require of their training blade. The synthetic blade is made from a high-impact polymer and is designed to flex in the last one-third of their length towards the tip, allowing for much safer thrusting than with conventional wooden practice weapons. The blade-to-tang connection is reinforced by a high-tensile steel rod that runs along the full length of the handle, which removes the typical handle flex that is often associated with other synthetic training swords. The ball-shaped finials on the guard and the rounded pommel are designed for sparring safety, allowing virtually no pointed or sharp edges that could catch, pierce, or puncture. The grip is made from a rubber-like material that is designed to absorb the impact of strikes, while also providing a tight fit to the tang. This sword is also approximately two-thirds the weight of a traditional steel sword, with a slight bias of weight balance focusing towards the hilt, ensuring a lower force of impact when swung. An added bonus is that this sword features interchangeable parts, allowing this blade to be altered to create a variety of blades to suit a variety of preferences. Not only does this Xtreme Synthetic Sparring Longsword Black Blade make a great practice weapon to work on your own swordsmanship skills, but it is also a realistic and great looking item that looks wonderful when used for theatrical purposes as well.
