Posted:while in motion with a big flame, it's difficult to tell the difference if the 'blade' of a fire sword is round doweling. i would encourage u to make a safer round doweling type 'blade' for a fire sword, and only advance to a metal/flat 'blade' shape when you're confident with the rounder, safer type.

when working with metal fire swords, try to cover all leading edges with wicking so that the inevitable hi-speed slip-up does not scald you. I've been playing with my fire words for about 5 years now - time enough to realise that eventually, there will be at least a few close calls.

Fire swords aren't devoid of risk, however u can do sensible things to mitigate that risk.

Posted:I'm thinking of a fire sword constriction that is durable enough to make a firefight.
Don't really think even kevlar(after some burns ofc) is strong enough to hold the strike if it is put dirrectly on the blade's 'sharp' end

Posted:Konstantin... leave the edges 'blank', don't wrap the Kev round the sword, rather put layers.... and don't use "round" blades wink If you intend to use them in a fight that is...

Posted:We use wooden practice ... oh god mind blank...like katanas but they're wooden and you prcatice with them... booken! That's it.

Anyway, ours are made of booken/boken with kevlar wrapped around. The person must wear kevlar gloves of course, and there have been a few mishaps with excess few running down the handle, soaking the gloves and the gloves lighting.. So everyone be very very careful!! kevlar gloves are not fireproof!! :P

We have a bellydancing balance sword too, but none of us girls are elegant and patient enough to practice with it.

Posted:What about wood getting burnt?
Bokkens are nice, I practied with it for 4 years and I mostly use katana technique with simple sword, if it got big enouh handle to take with both hands.
I guess it will be a problem with wood that even if you protect it from flames what sould be done using fiberglass. Wood becomes easy to break after being heated, after it becomes too dry.

Well, it's clear you must protect your hands from buring part, japanese tsuba helps both from heat and fuel, didn't ever use gloves.

Posted:Bokken are good to practice with, hence if you need a 'real' sword and one that you can practice a 'real' (staged) fire sword combat with, you want to head for steeeeel wink

The reason that wood won't get burnt too easily is that the wick is giving it protection from the flames... Still they are not safe (IMHO)...

Fire-Axes... umm now I can't see too much advantage of axes vs. swords - especially not with fire at night. Personally I haven's seen or heard of any fire-axes.

What I heard of are "Rope Dart" and "Tridents" - just now I met ThaiTom who is practising with a massive Trident - will be very nice to see him lighting that thing up devil

Posted:Our first swords were made from alluminium tube with wood incerted. Strong enough to hold a man standing on it but after 2-3 burns straight blades looked more like katana.

I saw one show using fire-axe, it was in Ukrain.
There was a 'giant' with huge axe and some dexterous guy with sword or two

Posted:we use fire swords for fire fighting dance..contact and non contact..Hubby makes ( and sells ) ours and they are very strong..made from aluminium to be light but with a welded handle like a real sword. the edges are not covered so that the kevlar doesnt get damaged...he even puts 'stuff' on the metal edge so that they spark when banged together... pm me if you like

Posted:sparkey "stuff" sounds extremely sexy... possible to get some? Swords I already got. wink

Thanks for enlightening me about fire-axes... one must be a Giant to properly handle them and look good with 'em at the same time - I suppose...

Posted:Sounds good, Nat.

At this point I can recommend (as long as you're not doing full contact) Goras swords. PM me and I send you the link.

He's got good quality products and you can combine two swords to build a single staff. Reasonably priced, too.

Posted:hey i heard some New Zealand website is selling fire swords:



http://www.homeofpoi.com/shop/productDetails/FIRE-Sword



seems great quality - the handle is way better than anything i've done.

With luck i will get a chance to assess it in person - speculation is only so useful to a point smile
