More details on the weapon quality
What is the difference between a NEMESIS sword and a sword made of expanded foam or injected foam?
NEMESIS swords are made from cross-linked EVA copolymer foam with closed cells, the weapon is 100% waterproof guaranteed and very resistant to tearing all while remaining soft-edged and safe. Our industrial grade synthetic and natural rubber coatings provide durability to the finish.

NEMESIS weapons present a slew of advantages over weapons made of injected polyurethane foam. To name a few of the characteristics the NEMESIS weapons possess that differentiate them:

✓ Softness of the materials
✓ Impermeability
✓ Safety for the thrust
✓ Balancing
✓ Unparalleled swaying and handling
✓ Incredible potential for customization.
✓ Process flexibility

What are the standard weapon lengths at NEMESIS?
The total length of the weapon is taken from point to pommel, here is an average of our standard lengths ;

✓ Knife = 30-50 cm
✓ Short sword, blunt weapon and short axe = 60-75 cm
✓ Longword, blunt weapon and longaxe = 80-100 cm
✓ Bastard sword, blunt weapon and bastard axe = 110 cm
✓ Two handed sword = 130-150 cm
✓ Polearms = 150-183 cm

How heavy is a NEMESIS weapon?
The majority of NEMESIS weapons are below 450 gr. (1.1 lbs). Depending on the length and the handle, the weight of the weapon varies between 275 and 800 gr. (0.6 to 2 lbs). This weight is mainly concentrated in the handles which gives our weapons an unequaled balance and realism in handling. Lighter weapons can reduce your grip on the handle and make you vulnerable to being easily disarmed.
What kind of reinforcement do you use?
We use a reinforcement made of polyester fiber with a complex weave. Reinforcements, especially when exposed to other materials such as glues, must have complex armor in order to resist tearing. Contrary to the rumor that the kevlar is indestructible we have done several tests, that resulted in failure when coated with glue. We also pay special attention to strengthening other parts of a weapon, including the guards and protuberances.
Are the NEMESIS weapons balanced?
NEMESIS weapons, especially swords, are renowned for their swing. The swing is calculated from the guard towards the point and is the perfect balancing point of the weapon. The closer it is to guard, while respecting a suitable overall weight, the better the weapon is balanced. NEMESIS weapons are balanced on average between 0 and 15 cm from the guard.
How is the durability, safety and maintenance of a NEMESIS weapon?
The life and safety of NEMESIS weapons is very much up to the user. If the user follows the instructions he can keep his weapons for several years despite many hours of practice and fighting. It is advisable to keep the blade clean and to apply a silicone-based protective product to avoid premature wear of the finish. Avoid leaving heavy objects on top of the weapon while in storage, materials are made of memory foam but can mark with time.
Are NEMESIS weapons safe for children?
Any NEMESIS weapon user under the age of 14 must be supervised by a responsible adult, must be able to hold the weapon and know how to use it.
Can you injure yourself with a NEMESIS weapon?
A new, refurbished or used NEMESIS weapon should always be inspected for safety. It is the responsibility of the user to deliver restrained blows and to avoid blows to the face and sensitive areas.
