Clare’s Sword, Claymore

13 Jul 2012 / in

Created for costuming purposes, this giant sword needed to be able to withstand the rigors of convention use while also being lightweight enough to be held with one hand. The bulk of the piece is made up of foam skinned in resin, while a solid resin tip makes sure the end of the blade isn’t damaged when setting it into a hard surface.

Clare’s Sword weighs only 3lbs and measures 60” tall.
