Knightshop Proline Xtreme Synthetic Longsword

These swords have been called “the Swiss Army Knife” of the Historical European Martial Arts world. The clever design allows for a multitude of different combinations of parts and colours to allow you to “create” the sword of your choice.

The swords can be taken apart easily by unscrewing the pommel. This not only makes transporting them easy – it also allows you to customise your sword with our range of interchangeable parts (available separately).

A synthetic sword without steel fittings weighs about 2/3 of the weight of a real sword. This is designed to lower the impact when sparring. The weight is kept back towards the hilt further lessening this impact. They are very well balanced and are heavier than most wooden wasters on the market.

range of swords is manufactured in the U.K to the highest quality. They are constructed from reinforced high impact plastic (U.K. sourced for quality control) unlike the cheaper inferior plastics used by other manufacturers. Recycled materials are used when available. Whilst this does not reflect in the quality of the product it does lessen the impact on the planet.

This complete Longsword includes:

From the manufacturer's website:

They are constructed from a special blend of high impact plastic and can be used like a waster for Drilling and Pell Work and can also be used for Sparring (with appropriate protection).
  • The Blades are designed to flex in the last 1/3 of their length towards the tip allowing for much safer thrusting than with conventional wooden wasters or shinai. The blade/tang joint (traditionally a weak point) is reinforced by a high tensile steel rod running along the full length of the handle. This also removes any flex in the handle traditionally associated with plastic training swords.
  • The Standard Guard is constructed from reinforced high impact plastic. The ball shaped quillons are designed for safety when sparring (large surface area = less chance of being impaled). They are modelled using the same dimensions as seen on an existing 15th Century Longsword. This is a nice example of a historical design that helps us with safe sparring.
  • The grips are manufactured from a rubber-like thermoplastic elastomer designed to absorb the impact of strikes as they are transmitted along the blade. They are designed to slide off the Sword's tang with relative ease and will compress for a tight fit.
  • The Standard Pommel is constructed from high impact plastic. This provides our swords with excellent balance and makes them safer than metal pommels for pommel strikes. A brass nut is moulded into the pommel to provide a tight metal on metal joint to the tang.

2 of 5 Poor Shipping I think June 3, 2019
Reviewer: Chad Tofteland from Ramsey, MN United States  
The plastic sword came warped near about 1/4 of the blade from the tip.  I can't thrust well because the point curves too much.  Othewise, the Aluminum pummel and brown handle was a great idea, but the plastic sword itself was shipped damaged
