Here's a small example of the nerf swords i make when, well, things just gotta get more personal than a foam dart. Excellent for melee combat during outdoor nerf battles or stand alone sword duels alike!

Posted Image
Posted Image
The original, well balanced long sword and wieldy short sword. Blade is coated in foam making truely nerf and suitable for fun and (reasonably...) safe combat


Posted Image
Posted Image
note the ridge spiraling around the handle, adding grip and none too shabby for aesthetics. This particular style bears the simple cross handguard and given a red accent color (out of white, blue, green, red, yellow, orange, and purple options)

Posted Image
Posted Image
Heres another handguard option set next to the cross for comparison, this one being the second i did out of about 12 varieties so far, but you can make pretty much any shape any style you want. Also this flavor has a solid nylon cord grip wrapped around the handle, functional and again looks very nice.

Posted Image
Posted Image
I have access to a much larger armory than just swords. Heres a double sided "axe". Great for catching enemy weapons and commands a much greater force behind each swing, sacrificeing speed and monouverability.

Posted Image
Posted Image
Anouther example of an axe and in a more traditional shape as well. A "bastard" axe well suited for double or single hand usage

Posted Image
Posted Image
Nerf spear. Incredibly deadly, and devestating in capable hands. About 7 to 8 feet long and by far the least portable... but who cares?

Posted Image
Posted Image
Tonfas. Etreame speed, manueverability, and ease of use. Short range and low damage. (The fast but weak chick)

I kind of agree.
But I gotta give props on construction, those obviously took a lot of time to make.

These are the coolest melee weapons I have ever seen. I really like that double-sided axe. And sleebo, come on, these are kind of cool. I would have posted this in the off-topic forum as opposed to the modifications forum though, because, like sleebo said, it is'nt quite nerf. But these are really cool looking. Props. Although, if you get a little too in to the game, you can hurt somebody pretty bad. Even if it is covered in foam.
EDIT: You know, I think you should make nun-chuks. That would just be freakin' awesome.

It's not like that. I put lube on it and its the same. Its just stuck. And when I cock it back it goes farther back then usual. Also I push as hard as I can and it wont go back in. I've tried the methods and they wont work. Also pics are up.

Do you guys just look youtube at for ideas? Haha. Just joking around.

And what would a short distance 'weapon' such as nun-chucks be used efficiently for? I mean, you have guns that can shoot 100+ feet, nun-chucks just wouldn't cut it. I think at least.

Nerf, not Foam Sword Battle.

Why do you post in topics like this only to complain about something "not being Nerf," while overlooking the effort and functionality of the actual product?

Why is this in the Mods section?

About the subject: I don't know about their legality in wars, but they still look cool. How thick is the foam padding on your weapons, on average? Also, how durable are they? Does the core material warp after decent use, or is it pretty rigid?

I agree with SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA 100%.

But aside from how long the core will last, what is the core? PVC? CPVC? Just curious, these look fun to make!

EDIT: And how exactly do you play with them? I mean, like, is it a one-hit-K.O. or what? Because if it's OHKO, then I can see your Tonfas being extremly useful.

As for nun-chuks, I did'nt really think they'd be functional, you know, just for shits and giggles.
And I'm pretty sure he's using PVC as a core.

wow, well when you're done fucking your mother i would like to see you make something half as nice as these

Nerf, not Foam Sword Battle.

About the subject: I don't know about their legality in wars, but they still look cool. How thick is the foam padding on your weapons, on average? Also, how durable are they? Does the core material warp after decent use, or is it pretty rigid?



thank you. Anyway, i posted in the mod section simply because thats the one i always check and i didnt even think of the other threads, it just completely passed my mind, my bad. The padding is about a centimeter to half an inch thick with thicker padding on the thrusting point. It's not meant to make it feel good when you get hit, it stings, but it does keep you from actually being injured while still looking slick and functional. They're not indestructible, but theyre meant for full contact usage and will stand up fine to being whacked together forcefully. However, if you are just trying to break them you will. Its a PVC core that i have reinforced and weighted to balance out the sword. I wont warp unless you leave it in your car in direct sunlight for a weekend, then i promise you it will. It would however shatter it you just smashed it into a steel beam over and over again.

I agree with SHADOW HUNTER ALPHA 100%.

But aside from how long the core will last, what is the core? PVC? CPVC? Just curious, these look fun to make!

EDIT: And how exactly do you play with them? I mean, like, is it a one-hit-K.O. or what? Because if it's OHKO, then I can see your Tonfas being extremly useful.



you can come up with whatever rules you want and change it up from game to game. Typically in one on one duels we use a point system, with head contact weighing more. In group fights you get "stunned" for a period of time if hit, with last man standing winning.

I actually have made nunchucks before easily, but they are utterly worthless in a fight and not even worth mentioning... haha. Also you could just as easily go out and purchase a pair of foam covered chucks if you really wanted to.

Lastly, i dont know why you would consider H2H not nerf. Hand 2 hand has been a long established and prized aspect of nerf battles. Im far from the first to come up with the idea. Nerf is foam based combat with your friends, how is this any different?

Belegarth?

I noticed the tape, sizes and shape.



Bwa? What is this Belegarth you speak of?!

Haha, these look really awesome, but I can't quite see their practicality in a war. Unless we all ran out of ammo somehow and decided to duke it out at close range or something. But, kudos for the designs, very well done indeed.

Edit: Well now that you mention it, a h2h round sounds pretty cool, perhaps between normal rounds just to make it interesting.

I really like the battle axes and swords. Boffing looks cool, I saw it in Shindig's sig.

Do you actually use these when you nerf???

I'd love a Daedric Nerfsword....

That may be illegal to say...

Why did this turn into a heated debate on the looks of one's motherly figure?

I think this actually looks pretty damn cool. I know OMC used a sword at APOC last year, so it really all depends with these. If the core is PVC, there had better be some thick foam covering it and it had better stay on well. I don't really want to get hit in the face with a piece of piping.

Yeah the foam wont come off, the whole thing would break befor that would happen, and it would take alot for the whole thing to break. It still hurts when you get hit in the face with a hard swing though, just the way it should be... You wont get injured or anything though.

Apology accepted

And laxtk88" It's figuratively speaking when one says that they're mother is the most beautiful woman in the world, I am stating that she can be matched be no other in her in inner and outer beauty, not "checking her out" Wait, I don't want to get in to this even more.

If nerf is about having fun, who cares if you're not using guns. The Effeminateness of drawing a sword in the middle of a gun fight is too awesome to pass up. Complaining about melee weapons seems pretty counterproductive to the spirit of nerf to me.
