Where to get Prop Swords made of plastic or rubber?

Recommended Posts

Guest Stone Buddha

I'm looking for swords which are made of either hard plastic or some other material which can be painted to give it a metal look. They must be functional in that they would have to be able to withstand repeated blows with each other. I'm choreographing a fight scene with 2 tai chi swords and I don't want to use my metal practice swords.

If anyone has a website or company name which specializes in these items, I'd appreciate it.

I would like to have a couple of realistic looking rubber/plastic swords myself, but I don't believe there are any companies on the internet that sells them:(

You could try making your own, either from scratch or paint wooden swords so that they look metalic. The only problems with wooden Tai Chi- practise swords are that they are very delicate, and will brake easily. Though, it might be possible to put ducktape around them and then paint them. That would make them a little stronger, but you still wouldn't be able to hit very hard with them.

I hope this helps!

if you try making your own, good luck (you're gonna need it)!

Gung Hei Faht choy, everyone!

If you make your own sword in a similar way of that I described in my earlier post, I would recomend you to use your metal training swords for close-ups!
