A lot of time and effort went into the design of these guards. The balance between safety, durability and aesthetics is hard to achieve. They are based on an original 15th century historical design - the balls on the end of the quillons allow for a much safer guard with little risk of impalement. They are manufactured from a very tough plastic which provides a good balance between impact and flexural strength. However, they are plastic and not steel and will break under less pressure than their metal counterparts. If you desire a stronger/heavier guard, we recommend you purchase a Pro-Line Stainless Steel Guard.
