Designed by HEMA practitioners, the Xtreme Synthetic Sparring Longsword Black Blade is ideal for training and working on your sword skills. It mimics the form, function, and weight of a real sword, without the dangers of a metal blade.
This sword has been crafted to feature enhanced durability. The black synthetic blade is made from a high-impact polymer. It is designed to flex in the last one-third of its length towards the tip. This allows for safer thrusting than with conventional wooden practice weapons.
The blade and tang feature a high-tensile-steel rod core. It runs along the full length of the handle. This removes the typical handle flex often associated with other synthetic training swords.
The ball-shaped finials on the guard and the rounded pommel are designed for sparring safety. They allow virtually no pointed or sharp edges that could catch, pierce, or puncture. Meanwhile, the grip is made from a rubber-like material that is designed to absorb the impact of strikes. It also provides a tight fit to the tang.
This sword is also approximately two-thirds the weight of a traditional steel sword. It has a slight bias of weight balance that focuses towards the hilt, ensuring a lower force of impact when swung.
Also, this sword features interchangeable parts, allowing you to create a variety of blades. 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.
