The Romans. Whatís there to say about the Romans that hasnít been said already? Well Ö uh .. .how about this one: The Romans used to believe that the start called ďSiriusĒ used to add itís heat to that of the sunís during July and August. Since Sirius is said to be the Dog-Star, they called this period of time the ďdies canicular,Ē or the Days of the Dog, which is how the expression, ďthe Dog Days of SummerĒ came about. Howís that for obscure Roman trivia? Best of all, itís actually true! (editorís note; for a change).
But enough about dogs and stars. Youíre here to learn about this unmatched, high-performance foam Gladius. It sure is a beauty eh? In fact, I donít think Iíve ever seen another LARP Gladius that can match itís looks. And youíd be hard pressed to find a foam Roman Gladius that can take the amount of punishment that this one can.
Itís founded on a ridiculously strong carbon-fiber core that adds power and flexibility to the blade. Itís also made with a proprietary foam formula that resists weather, punctures, tears, breaks, cracks, and hunting trips with Dick Cheney. The foam is fused to the core so there is no slipping, detachment, or loss of energy in strikes. This structure makes it the perfect tool for weapons training, LARPing, or just goofing around youíre your friends.
But the structure of the weapon is only part of the beauty of this weapon. The other part of the beauty is Ö well Ö the beauty. The entire hilt of this weapon is lushly decorated with Roman symbols and vine patterns. On one side of the guard is an eagle, the symbol of the Roman empire. On the other side is a wolf, referencing the Wolf-Squads formed by Roman midgets riding wolves into battle. These squads were ferocious and one of the main reasons that the Roman Empire grew so quickly acrossÖ Oh wait. Iím sorry, I just remembered that the Roman Wolf-Squads were in a dream I once had. I donít think the Romans actually had midgets riding wolves. But one wonders why they didnít. It would certainly have struck fear into the hearts of the enemies. Mirth, at the very least. The wolf is actually on the guard because of Romulus and Remus, the two brothers who founded Rome after being raised by a wolf-mother.
Every other inch of the hilt on this weapon is garnished with decorative elements. It truly is a gorgeous weapon. We usually have only a limited amount of these in stock at one time, so grab one while itís here!
About our Conqueror Series Swords
Our Conqueror line of foam swords are the most
realistic foam swords that we have ever seen. The
molding process and high quality foam used on these weapons allows for an
amazing amount of detail and the designs take full
advantage of this. And though great looking, their
durability may be even more impressive.
Two different styles of spine rods on the Conqueror
swries allow you to customize your game. One style is
made of fiberglass and reinforced with polyester for
strength and power. The other style is made from a
carbon/fiberglass combination. These latter are
considered the "Performance Series" and have a little
more spring and a bit more durability to them,but not
so much that you'll really notice when using it. Both
styles are extremely durable and are fused with the
blade and pommel to prevent slippage or torquing.
Our Conqueror lines are relatively realistic in weight
(about 1 pound or more) and feature a more "rubbery"
feel to them. . These are monstrously durable and have
a legendary lifespan. They can be twisted and torqued
like a wet rag and they will still return to true form
instantly. Safety is top notch on these, with tip
flex-enforcers and a good thickness of foam
The Conqueror series weapons made from a proprietary
foam with no latex at all. The molding process allows
all of the elements -- the composite rod,
reinforced tip and quality polymers to merge into one
solid item. The foam is insanely durable -- it resists
puntcures and returns to shape no matter how much you
deform it. A fiber matrix of fiberglass and nylon (or
Kevlar/polymer depending on the weapon) increases the
safety and creates a progressive absorption for less
Weather resistance is another great strength on these.
These weapons have been immersed in water for two
weeks and then dried in the sun without any damage
whatsoever. The Conqueror series can be used at almost
any temperature. -22 degrees Farenheit up to 212
degrees Farenheit (for those of you playing on one of
Jupiter's moons). The foam stays soft, no matter the
With all the technological features, you sometimes
forget that there are works of art. Perhaps the best
looking swords on the market.
