I’ve been fascinated lately by true medieval weaponry. Not fantasy swords or movie swords, but the real deal. Thanks to Youtube creator Shad at Shadiversity I’ve been inspired to make a line of historically accurate (at least as close as I can get with plastic) medieval weapons cast out of epoxy resin. They are based off of the Oakeshott Classification system and so far include an early medieval and late medieval example.
The first couple have turned out okay. The epoxy cures very hard but still slightly flexible. The weight is a little less than the real thing but the balance is the same. These are great for costumes or display, but they might also work for practice and reenactments.
Warning though, spar at your own risk. My kids have been whacking each other with them for a while, but these have not been extensively tested for strength in simulated combat!
You can buy them finished, with a few options for color, or unfinished and raw, if you’d like to dress them up yourselves (or leave them raw for sparing).
