Knightshop Xtreme Synthetic Arming Sword / Shortsword
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.
This 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.
