This plastic messer is designed for Historical European Martial Arts. The sword is made for intensive use. Just like a real sword blade, this blade is flexible but strong enough to take hard impacts without breaking. This sword can easily be adjusted to your own taste by changing the pommel, grip, blade or cross-guard. These swords are suitable for training, sparring and competitions. They are durable and much cheaper than real swords. The swords are also safe to use for people that have never held a sword before. They are also very suitable for film and theatre because they are lifelike. Contrary to real swords, this sword is not a weapon but has all qualities of a sword. The weight and balance are also similar to a real sword.
