As a squire, you are up before dawn serving your Master. You are expected to have your Master’s armour polished and ready at a moment’s notice. There isn’t a moment to yourself that isn’t being spent thinking about your work. Without your Master’s blessing, you’ll never become a Knight.
Only sparingly do you have the opportunity to train your actual knightly skills, however. What personal weapon you own, a single Squire Sword, is easy enough for you to wield as you practice your cuts. One day you will be a fearsome knight. For now, you must continue to work hard.
Epic Armoury’s Unpainted Squire Sword Handle is a weapon inspired by European medieval sidearms. The handle is being sold separate for your do-it-yourself project. The crossguard curves toward the blade to trap incoming strikes, protecting a 10 cm detailed grip--cast to look like real wood with metal embellishments. It arrives unpainted, so that you might add whatever detailing you wish.
Whether you are a squire training to become a knight or a common European soldier, this Squire Sword Handle is our highest quality gear due to its impressive durability and detail. Pair it with your own foam and latex blade, while benefitting from Epic Armoury’s reputation for detail. Made from a polyurethane foam cast, this handle requires no maintenance.
Directions for Use:
Paint the handle using paint specifically designed for polyurethane foam. We recommend using a primer, first. Create or buy one of our fibreglass core foam blades, leaving a core length that matches the handle. Allow the handle’s paint to completely dry before sliding the handle onto the exposed core of your blade and glue it in place. Allow the glue to dry completely before use--likely after 1-2 days.
