The Apocalypse is such a cool concept. The end of the world. Dead people rising like zombies. Fire in the sky. Skeletal men riding horses. An epic battle for the fate of humanity with burning meteorites sizzling through the air. Small people wearing boots on their hands and jelly smeared over their feet. Semi-naked women eating handfuls of mayonnaise. Bubbling pools of beer everywhere. Um. Well, that's sort of my vision, really. I'm not quite sure if that's the verbatim biblical account of it.
This 42-inch-long two-handed sword is the perfect match for everything I just described (except maybe the small people with the shoes on their hands). It is quite possibly the most elaborate foam sword that we sell, and one of the strongest, too. The entire thing is built around a ridiculously powerful carbon fiber hybrid core. Yes, this core gives it amazing strength and durability, but it also transfers the energy of a swing beautifully for a realistic strike every time.
But you're not reading this to learn about swing mechanics or energy physics, are you? (I'm actually not really sure if there is such a thing as Ê½energy physics. And if there is, I'm not sure it really applies here. But it does make me sound a whole lot smarter, doesn't it?) (editor's note: yes, right up to the point where you told everybody that you don't know what it means). You're reading to find out more about the glorious carvings that grace every inch of the guard and pommel of this sword.
Well, you really couldn't ask for cooler things carved onto a sword (read my sentence about the women and the mayonnaise above for a possible exception). Death Himself forms the grip on this sword. So, when you tell people that you hold death in your hands, you'll be telling them the God's honest. The sword also features the skeletal riders of the Apocalypse, an hourglass, scales, two heads impaled on swords (one on each side, including the head of a king), a harpy, a crazy all-seeing eye, a winged angel/demon (you pick) on the pommel, and more scrollwork and vine patterns than you can shake a weedwacker at (there's a lot more in there, but you can look at it yourself when you buy it.)
This sword is probably the finest LARP sword that we sell. Structurally, it's almost indestructible. Aesthetically, it's unmatched. Overall, it's one two-handed sword that you'll want to take everywhere.

100% Cuts of Useful Information
When Strongblade refers to a "Battle Sword
," we are referring to most European medieval swords
with blades longer than 35” or so. These type of swords included hand-and-a-half swords
(sometimes refered to as Bastard Swords
) and the big two-handed swords
. Real battle swords
had blades well in excess of this, and, in fact, a 35" sword was considered a bit skimpy for fighting skirmishes. But for home use and light sparring, a 36" blade is fairly long.
