Every once in a while, we get a sword that everyone wants to use. Its picture ends up all over the website because everyone thinks it looks so darn cool and warehouse staffers get into fist fights over who gets to use it in our weekly warehouse tournaments. This LARP Cutlass is one of those weapons.
That said, The Stormrunner is actually a perfect sword for
dark, swarthy, piratey, roguish types.
Not just any of these mind you. I'm talking Pirate
Captain, Thieve's Guild leader, King's surly bastard,
etc. And if you're into the Cthulhu mythos, it's perfect for you too! (more on that later).
This LARP saber features a giant kraken surrounding a skull that bears a jewel in it's mouth. There is some argument, though, among the Strongblade employees that it might actually be a Cthulhu beast. Either way, it's pretty damn scary looking and its eyes are set into the pommel of the sword.
The entire sword is actually an amazing piece of
piratey beauty; the intricate details of the finger
guard, the decorated border that outlines the entire
guard and the astonishing detail work on the grip (you
can actually see individual 'stitches' on it). It also has a fairly detailed horse head at the end of the finger guard.
The sword features a fiberglass core that is fused to
the foam for durability and security. The longer
version of this sword features a hybrid performance
core that is a little more rigid than the fiberglass
one on the shorter one. The large version is
absolutely dreamy, although the balance is slightly
awkward for slashing - much better at thrusting. The
shorter version is snappy and fun, though not as rigid
as the long.
About our Conqueror Series Swords
ur 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
series 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
puncturers 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.
