La Duchesse bastard sword
Created in collaboration with Le Duché de Bicolline, La Duchesse represents the culmination of two universes linked by the same destiny. On the one hand, Bicolline, today the largest domain devoted to medieval fantasy role-playing games in North America, is celebrating the 25th anniversary of it's Battle. On the other hand, Calimacil, whose know-how for the creation of foam weapons for LARP continues to evolve, now relies on partnerships between the various LARP industry players.
The handle of La Duchesse proudly displays the seahorse, emblem of Bicolline, on its pommel and on each side of its hilt. The golden color gives it a majestic aspect that is sure to turn heads. The rest of the handle, more sober, gives it a striking realism. The suptile variations between silver and steel hues, between black and dark brown, allow the details of the grip and the guard to be raised. The blade has all the characteristics of the latest innovations from Calimacil. It strikes the perfect balance between safety and a realistic look. The illusion of sharpness is accentuated by a silver edging on a steel base. As a final touch, the base of the blade features engravings whose detail is revealed by a gold color on a black background.
More than a simple foam sword for LARP, La Duchesse will occupy an important place in several scenarios. Object of legend, lost for eternity then found in a first quest, she will find herself alongside the king in the next. Her awe-inspiring appearance makes her ideal for roles like paladins, knights, wealthy merchants, or any other high ranking member of society whose wealth is matched only by his or her bravery in battle.
This item is hand-made and/or hand-painted, which makes it unique. In result of that, this product can have natural differences in design, color and shape, which are not considered faults or defects.
Everyone wants for their weapons to serve as long as possible.
Nothing can describe how to maintain
Remember that most of the damage is done due to the lack of maintenance and bad storage.
Store your latex weapons flat or standing on their pommel - NEVER on the thrust (this will cause damage to the tip of the weapon, that’s not refunded)
Use a barrier made of paper or a towel to guard your weapon in contact with other plastic or rubber surface, so they won’t stick together.
Keep your weapon in a cool, dry area.
Avoid long time exposure to sunlight and don’t transport your weapons on top of your car luggage.
Remember about the maintenance, sprays work best for that.
