Classic Fire Sword
The Classic Fire Sword is the essential fire sword for a look and feel most similar to a traditional sword! This swords blade to handle proportions are designed to be comfortable for spinning while also keeping the classic “sword” look. The Classic Fire Sword is best suited for swinging style moves as opposed to contact moves. This sword produces a huge flame, impressive even to large audiences!
The core of the Fire Sword is a 0.5″ fiberglass rod. The handles start with a 1.5″ wooden ball knob followed by a soft spongy EPDM grip. A silicone heat resistant disc acts as a shield to protect your hands and arms from the flames. The tip of the blade is wrapped with reinforced Kevlar wick to protect from abrasion. If this part is damaged, we recommend you don’t use the sword until it’s replaced as this part is much easier to repair.
