Your look out upon your troops, staring into the faces of the soldiers who may never return. Their blood is on your hands already, and it is a responsibility you hold with a heavy, but resigned heart.

“We must fight,” you shout for them all to hear. You are a mighty figure with your armour and Defender sword, a symbol to strike confidence in these soldiers. “For our homes and for our families, we will fight until we can fight no more!” With a resounding cheer, your troops ready themselves for the charge.

The battle has begun.

DETAILS

This Ready For Battle Defender is a rich looking fantasy sword of medium size. It is 75 cm long from pommel to point, with a short ricasso near the crossguard meant to protect the fingers from being sliced during certain historical sword maneuvers. The blade is superbly balanced with a 15th century Italian-inspired pommel and an ergonomic handle below a butterfly shaped crossguard. The handle is sculpted and handpainted to appear like leather, but does not require leather care.

Ready For Battle weapons are moderately styled and cost-effective weapons that are perfect for new and young players. This RFB Defender is one of our hybrid models, featuring a handle cast in polyurethane foam that allows for greater detail and no maintenance. The blade is made from closed cell foam around a fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating.

HISTORY

  • Also referred to as a “Knightly sword” or “arming sword”
  • Designed so that the center of mass was closer to the hilt, improving its maneuverability
  • Typically used with a shield or buckler

  • Blade has a strong latex coating with a round fibreglass core
  • Strong Kevlar core tip protection
  • Blade is made from durable closed cell foam that does not shred
  • Handle is a polyurethane foam cast, giving it more detail with no maintenance!
  • Handle is very durable, will last longer than a latex version, and is less slippery than a silicone treated alternative
  • High safety, approved by the top organizations

This hybrid weapon’s handle does not require any special maintenance, while the blade has a latex coating which needs a certain degree of maintenance. For this we recommend using maintenance silicone, which can be purchased separately in the LARP
