Review

I’ve never owned an elven weapon before, so when Strongblade offered to send me some to review I jumped at the chance. I’ve always assumed they were lightweight flimsy things, which were almost no use in full on combat.

How wrong I was.

The first thing i noticed about these weapons was the fact that they were incredibly resilient. They had that nice durable rubber feeling that lets you know that the weapon isn’t likely to fall apart anytime soon. Naturally I couldn’t wait to get them into a combat situation, so I quickly grabbed a good friend of mine armed him with a (very very heavy) weapon, and we set about bashing each other to oblivion! The weapon actually held it’s ground well despite my fears. I think the added weight of the rubber lends itself to a much more sturdy blade than to the elven weapons I’ve been used to in the past.

You might think that the durability and increased weight may go against you in terms of speed in combat, however despite this weight the sword still weighed in lighter than the injected foam weapons of Calimacil for example, though in a fight against a pure foam cloth covered ultralight you are definitely going to be at a disadvantage.

All things considered however for the cost, the durability and the plain yet simple design I can safely say this is the best Elven (albeit Drow) weapon I have seen for a very long time.

I’m definitely converted and am looking forward to a good few more battles with the blade in the coming months!

Conclusion, If you play a drow or dark elf type character then I can safely say that this is the only sword for you. It’s quick effective, and looks stylish. It’s rare to find something that matches aesthetics as well as it matches combat!
