Designed for HEMA and sparring, the Xtreme Basket Hilt Synthetic Sparring Sword Silver Blade is ideal for training and practicing 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. Made from a high-impact polymer, the synthetic blade has a construction 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 that is often associated with other synthetic training swords.
The rounded pommel is designed for sparring safety. It has no pointed or sharp edges that could catch, pierce, or puncture. The basket grip utilizes a high-impact polymer to create a defensive and effective handguard. 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.
An added bonus is that this sword features interchangeable parts, allowing you to create a variety of blades. Not only does this Xtreme Basket Hilt Synthetic Sparring Sword Silver 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.
