About Strongblade's Paladin Series of Latex Swords and Daggers
Among makers of latex swords and daggers/foam swords and daggers, the manufacturer of the Paladin family of latex swords is one of the finest
in the world. The company, based in Scandinavia, 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 as well as field testing.
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.
also used is 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.
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.
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.
