Our Weapons

What are the standard lengths of our weapons?

The total length of the weapon is taken from the tip to the pommel.

How much does a weapon weight?

Depending on the length and the handle, the weight of a weapon varies between 275 and 1000 g (0.6 to 2.2 lbs).

What type of reinforcement do you use?

The tip is reinforced with a matrix composite that fuses to the foam and prevents the perforation of the foam by the rod, which allows you to point hit safely. The axe heads are also reinforced to give them body, a performance that is similar to a real axe, and to prevent the head from ripping. Some weapons are also reinforced with Kevlar at the tip.

What is the difference between our swords and a latex sword?

Calimacil foam (often misnamed injected foam) is an industrial-strength polyurethane foam with a delayed reaction for injection use.

Calimacil foam weapons offer many advantages compared to latex weapons. These are a few of the characteristics that differentiate Calimacil foam weapons from latex weapons: spectacular realism, durability in extreme combat conditions, weather resistant, very safe.

Weapons – Safety & Maintenance

Are our swords safe for children?

Yes, Calimacil foam respect CE EN-71 safety standards. The CE standard is a European compliance standard on the safety of toys for children between the ages of 4 and 14. However, all children should be supervised by an adult in charge and must know how to properly hold and use the sword.

Can I get hurt with a your weapon?

It is your responsibility to strike safely, that is to hit not using full force, avoid hitting the face or sensitive areas. Just as in a paintball game, some may get bruises, and it is also your responsibility to wear adequate protective gear depending on your game style.

Is any maintenance required between uses?

No. We recommend keeping the blade clean with water if it gets soiled by dirt or sand. Calimacil weapons do not have a coating that can be damaged, replaced or that requires maintenance as regular latex sword does.

Is it normal that the blade discolours on my hands if I rub it?

The blade’s colouring process is a coating agent applied in the mold, which must fuse to the foam. The excess disappears over time and the blade will keep its metallic colour. The blade cannot be repainted using this process since it involves molding the blade. Note that usage could result in a loss of shine on the blade.

How long does your products last?

Our clients uses them for extreme combats and vacation camps. They have been used them for years without any problem.

You claim that the weapon is weather resistant, how was this tested?

For one year to the day, we exposed two weapons to the outdoor elements sun, rain, frost, etc. The Calimacil weapon yellowed slightly but the properties remained the same except for the handle had a more dull appearance on the side exposed to the sun compared to unexposed side. On the other hand, the latex weapon disintegrated and was no longer usable.

Armors – Safety & Maintenance

What is the maintenance needed for your leather products?

  • Leather products must be stored in a clean and dry environment to prevent mold or premature ageing on the leather.
  • Before placing a wet item in storage, dry it in its original form in open air.
  • A wax specially made for leather (found at any shoemaker) may be applied periodically to ensure its durability.
