Oooh, that is a nice plus. Heavy props can be such a pain to lug around.

well I'm making props, I don't want live weapons as these are for conventions. Plus...I don't like how storebought ones look. There's always something a little off. Also...I highly doubt they'd let me cross the US-Canada border with a sword.
