In every great tale, there is a villain, and there is a champion. The champion is the guy who faces all sorts of adversity on his way to defeating the villain, winning the heart of the princess and locking down a slew of endorsement deals.
This sword comes in two styles, gold and green. The gold features a diamond pommel and thick, sturdy guards. The green bears a cylinder pommel and flared, stylish guards. Both styles have long, straight, medieval style blades.
This sword is part of the Squires line, perfect for children ages 6-12 (with supervision for the younger mites, please) or for adults who just want to have a little fun at the party or office.
About Squires Series Swords
The Squires series is line of weapons made primarily for children ages 6-12, although these can be used by adults looking for lower cost alternatives. The foam on these is softer than the standard line and the core is more flexible. The Squires swords are still made to astoundingly high standards and are still worlds better than the supposedly high-end lines that most other manufacturers make.
About Strongblade's Latex Swords and Daggers
In every industry, there is one company that towers above all others. Among weapon vendors, that company of course is Strongblade.com =D. But among makers of latex swords and daggers / foam swords and daggers, our manufacturer is without question the best in the world. The company, based in Scandanavia, is responsible for pushing the envelope in technology, aesthetics and safety.
Once one of these weapons is designed, it is put through a minimum of six months of testing and refining before it is allowed to hit the market. These tests include moderate and extreme stress simulations, field testing, and SAT tests to ensure that the sword can get into a good college (lawyer's note: That last one is categorically not true. The weapons ocassionally take the ACT tests, not SATs, and it is not a requirement of these tests)(editor's note: Our writer has gone insane. He is impersonating a lawyer and writing about swords going to college. Please ignore him. These weapons cannot take academic tests).
Our manufacturer pioneered the use of round carbon-fiber cores in the mass-market, a technology that makes their sword astoundingly strong, flexible and springy. The cores feature special structural reinforcements around pressure areas like the joint between guard and blade. This prevents the weapon from breaking or folding at areas of high stress.
Our manufacturer uses a proprietary multi-density foam. This last, complex sounding sentence means that they use a small layer of dense foam around the core and a larger, softer layer of foam to make the shape of the weapon. This makes for a very safe weapon that can withstand incredible amounts of punishment. This also makes for a unique sword amongst the sea of other manufacturers who simply cast a mold, fill it with one layer of lower quality foam and call it a day.
These weapons feature another design feature unique to them: A Vari-flex Tip design. This is a design feature in the tip that allows them to bend gradually rather than abruptly. Doing this prevents stress on the tip and makes it almost impossible to cause creasing or weak spots that could lead to breaks.
I could go on and on. And come to think of it, I will for one more paragraph, because I forgot to mention the proprietary paint used on these weapons. Our manufacturer uses a revolutionary painting technique on these weapons that is engineered to reflect light exactly as real metal would. The paint is also designed to protect the weapon, providing a strong barrier that stretches slightly with each flex.
If you don't get the idea by now, we're very excited to be offering these weapons. At Strongblade, we prefer to sell the products that we manufacture; this ensures that what we sell is up to our standards. So, when we decide to sell another company's products, its most likely because that company is the best in the industry. This is clearly true of these swords. Buy these weapons and you are buying the highest quality latex weapon that we have ever seen.
