Re: Using colors on weapons


That would be up to the checkers discretion. I have seen garb that is light pink, I think I have even been told that historical viking red is similar to pink. I wish I could give you a better answer, but when it comes to thing like appearance of a weapon it is up to the checkers/event runners.

I agree with Fenris, but will add that as long as it's not neon, there shouldn't be any reason that it is specifically illegal.

Re: Using colors on weapons


Pink is one of those random colors that always seems to bring up issues with people. Whether its with Dag weapons, or in life in general.

Personally for me, if I was doing weapons check at an event or practice, as long as it is not the highlighter/neon pink color, it would be fine at for being pink.

I have seen a few weapons(mostly arrows) that had a pink cover on them, but they were more of the Pink Panther pink, than bright neon pink. It will all depend on the checker, but it more than likely would be ok with Eryndor.

Honestly, we have a bit more fantasy in our realm, so as long as you have a storyline reason for werid colors, and it doesn't do anything special besides be a werid color, then I see no reason why it shouldn't be allowed.

Re: Using colors on weapons


We'll have to think up some exceptable reason then lol.

Side note: in my first 2 swords I made I didn't have this issue, but in the next 3 I made I did. I am hearing a slight creaking sound when they are being swung. They seem to be holding up ok in testing, but it's still an issue I would like to avoid in the future. The only difference between the first 2 and the next 3 is the the creaking ones are a few inches shorter. Still duel fiberglass cores duct tape then athletic taped and blue camp foam blades. Any idea what might be causing this issue? If you need more info on construction you can find it in the "My first sword" thread.

Re: Using colors on weapons


If your flats aren't completely flush with the core, you may not get a complete grip with the first warp of the blade. This sometimes causes small movements that might creak, but for the most part they are usually fine for awhile. Just make sure you keep an eye on your weapon before each practice.

Then again it could be something else or nothing at all. Hope this helped.
