An ideal training blade mimics the form, function, and weight of a real sword, without including the dangers of a sharpened metal weapon. This Xtreme Basket Hilt Synthetic Sparring Sword Black Blade was designed by HEMA (historical European martial arts) practitioners to do just that. 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 rounded pommel is designed for sparring safety, allowing virtually no pointed or sharp edges that could catch, pierce, or puncture, while the basket grip utilizes a high-impact polymer to create a defensive and effective hand-guard. 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 Basket Hilt Synthetic Sparring Sword 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.
