We are happy to announce that we are once more fully stocked with weapons from our Stronghold and Stronghold Master Collection! The Stronghold line of weapons is fully cast foam swords made to deliver maximum quality, rendering an outer latex layer obsolete. The patented ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) copolymer foam used to build these weapons has a very soft density, making the impact comparable to regular Epic Armoury weapons. An added benefit offers a much higher degree of detail on the handle and blade. Stronghold weapons emphasise high safety through a low energy transfer by impact, high durability, low maintenance, and a realistic appearance. Below you can get acquainted with five of our best melee weapons eagerly awaiting your next adventure.
THE BASTARD SWORD
“The sturdy heft of the blade sounds your opponent back. Your grip tightens around the sword as your eyes narrow. These opponents will apparently not back away from a fight. Luckily, you intend to give them just that.”
The Bastard Sword is for those who travel the countryside: The adventurer who roam the taverns in search of stories and new quests for fortune and fame and are sure of their combat prowess. You may not have the fame and influence of others, but words travel fast about your deeds and growing fortune.
The sword is available in either 96 or 114 cm and has a colour variant of Gold or Steel. All variants have a 67 cm fullered blade designed to be lightweight while maintaining its structural stability. Made from EVA foam around a fibreglass core and finished with strong and impressive paintwork!
The extended version exhibits a 20 cm long, highly detailed ricasso made from polyurethane foam that is sculpted and hand-painted to look like brown leather with stitching. The steel-coloured crossguard is embellished with subtle gold details, and the handle is cast and painted to appear like hardwood. A simple scent stopper pommel at the end of the handle promises that this no-fuss-sword will get the job done for you.
THE HIGHBORN SWORD
“The fine woven soft leather gloves run across the ivory hilt of the Highborn Sword. Passing by a few farmers, their gaze turns towards the ground, unable to meet your gaze. That sword is more than just a weapon. It is a symbol of your family’s authority.”
This sword is for those defined by blue blood. Those who know that name and clout are worth more than combat prowess. This sword is an extension of your authority, and although you rarely draw it, you are more than capable of defending yourself.
The sword is available in two lengths, 96 and 116 centimetres, and in three colour variants: Dark, Steel and Ivory. The standard for all variants is the 65-centimetre fullered blade designed to be lightweight while maintaining its structural stability. Made from EVA foam around a fibreglass core and finished with strong and impressive paintwork, this sword is just as soft as any latex-coated weapon but even more sturdy in battle!
The extended version exhibits a 20 cm long, highly detailed ricasso made from polyurethane foam that is sculpted and hand-painted to look like filigree-decorated steel embellished with subtle golden details. The steel-coloured crossguard is adorned with a loop guard inspired by ivy and fleur-de-lis, and the handle is cast and painted to appear like brown wood. An intricate scent stopper pommel at the end of the handle crowns this magnificent sword. At our webpage you can also purchase the exclusive Red Highborn Sword.
THE ARMING SWORD
“Your swing is not graceful or dexterous but utilitarian and to the point. For you, the art of the sword is meant to be as quick and efficient. Your arming sword, simple in its design, follows that philosophy. Why be flashy when you can be firm?”
The Arming Sword is for those looking for a blade with no frills attached. Those of you who do not wish to stand out in a crowd and instead blend in with muted clothing and weapon choices. A perfect weapon for the city guard who patrols the city or the scoundrel travelling the city’s path.
The Arming Sword comes in lengths of 87 and 105 centimetres. It has a crisp, detailed blade and sturdy hilt, inspired by mediaeval swords, and hand-painted to match a resourceful and rustic look. The sword is cast in high-quality combat-safe foam, made to have excellent handling and to last through many hard-fought battles.
THE KNIGHTLY SWORD
“The divine voice spoke to you in a dream, and you rode out on your quest with devout determination. You’ve been through many battles and lost many comrades, but the sword is still at your side. Although plain, it has a keen edge and can tell many tales of your righteousness.”
This sword is for those who steadfastly do their duty, never lose sight of mercy, and fight evil around every corner – those who would defend their liege and their land and fight for the loyal subjects. Knights, squires, and soldiers of the church all will find a faithful companion in this blade.
The Knightly Sword comes in 87 and 105 centimetres with a detailed blade for a simple yet classic look to fit knightly characters.
THE MARAUDER SWORD
“The blade thirsts for yet another soul to take as the unquenchable desire to conquer beckons you onwards. Clutching the Marauder Sword with heinous determination, you let out a guttural war cry for other ruinous forces to rally around. War is awaiting, and you will fight to their very end.”
This sword is for those devoted to the thrill of carnage by bringing about certain death. Marauders and raiders are just as delighted in hunting and killing as the loot it brings.
The Marauder Sword is available in two lengths: 96 and 107 centimetres. The sword has a detailed blade, hand-painted for an eroded look to match a ruinous warrior. The sword is cast in high-quality combat-safe foam, made for excellent handling and to last through many hard-fought battles. The blade calls to you!
