Black Market Kitespar Sword
Black Market Kitespar Sword
WHAT’S GREAT ABOUT BLACK MARKET KITESPAR SWORDS?
-The black market kitespar sword has a counterweighted handle.
-The oblong handle and thin foam blade offer easy handling
-The old style kitespar rope wrap handle with glove grip is upgraded to our new rope-free thin profile handle.
-The Black Market Kitespar sword is better than the classic kitespar sword but not as minmax as our new Secret Sword. The secret sword and Black Market Kitespar Sword share the same new handle but the Black Market has a more durable and foam blade and is counterweighted in the handle. The secret sword has a beveled striking surface and a counterweighted pommel. The new Black Market Kitespar Sword feels great, is available in covers, and will offer you a longer life than the ultra minmax secret sword.
BETTER BALANCE POINT
The 36″ black market kitespar sword balances at 14″ from the base of the handle.
The 36″ on 3/8 Fiberglass weighs less but balances at about 17″ from the base of the handle.
The biggest difference is the counterweight and balance point and responsiveness.
GORGTECH SECRET SWORDS NOW HAVE THE BEST BALANCE POINT!!!

“I love this sword. However, my foes do not! It’s light, fast, and leaves a nice sting I’ve been told xD. Buying another soon.” SlothDaOgre 10/11/16
“Awesome swords as usual. I call them my “beating wands.” For some reason, no one else does.” TwilightEffigy 11/14/16
“As a protege to PTQ and a member of the Amyr, I have drifted towards omni bladed weapons since about 2009, until I purchased a Black Market flat-blade from Gorg last year. Let me preface the technical review part of this story with a sales pitch. There is absolutely no better flat blade in the market. Period. The weapon sits at 36″ and sits around 12.5 oz, with the balance sitting right around the top of the handle, which translates to perfection for any sword. The sword is responsive and is very comfortable in the hand with a rectangular oblong handle, making holding the sword at a 90°angle ideal. The blade itself is much thinner profile than the typical 3″ flat. Sitting at around 2.5, it finds slots and lanes other swords cannot and cuts air as if it were whipped cream. This weapon is a masterpiece. Buy one!” Sir Trogdor 12/2/16
