Our Contact Floating Sword is 42" long from end to end. It is made from a single piece of tapered thin walled steel tubing, similar to a golf club shaft, which makes it lightweight but extremely strong. It has just enough flex for off body moves yet is strong enough that it isn't springy or easily bent. The swords diameter fits comfortably in your hand and rolls at a very controllable rate.
Burnable Length (aka Sword Wick) Specs:
The blade section of this sword is approximately 19” long, giving you plenty of fire along with enough gripped area for a variety of contact body moves.
Counter-Weights and Safety:
Many contact swords have large metal balls on the handle side as a counterweight, or metal balls that have been covered in a light plastic or silicone coating. These metal balls can be very dangerous during spinning, especially for beginners as they can hit your body with enough force to cause concussions and broken bones. Our contact sword's weighted end is covered with rubber coated memory foam which
provides a soft impact surface that is both durable and forgiving.
is a traditional adhesive-backed padded grip. It is tear-resistant, and has a very slight ridge. To maintain its grippy surface, you should periodically clean this grip with soap, water, and the rough side of a sponge.
Most severe equipment burns come from searing-hot exposed metal, not from the wicks. To minimize exposed metal, we simply don't have any. The interface between the wick and that grip is covered with a layer of silicone wrapping, giving you a fire resistant area between the wicks and the grip.
Typical burn time is:
Burn times are estimated based on recorded burns using Coleman Camp Fuel aka "white gas" . Actual burn times may vary based on individual spinning style, type of fuel used, and other factors.
A Fire Floating Sword is a wicked sword where the weight balance has been shifted off-center. The wicked material is soaked in liquid fuel and lit on fire as a performance art form. A heavy brass ball on the end of the sword changes the center point of gravity to the middle of the handle. This slows down the rotation and momentum of the sword, making object manipulation easier for on-body contact moves. Instead of wielding the sword with just your hands, parts of your body such as your neck, shoulders, forearms, elbows, chest and back can be used.

This sword is one of a kind and is perfect to flow with, the weight and balance are perfect for contact moves and martial arts moves as well! Interested to see how long the wicks last! Great sword!

Unfortunately there is no tip for the sword, as shown and described clearly on the website with a metal tip, except an extra wrap of cloth and a couple cheap wires twisted around it to hold it in place. When i asked about this, they explained it was the upgraded version from the tip and they'll update the website later. I plan to keep and play with this awesome sword forever, just a little disappointed with the finishing quality.

I bought this sword for my guy for his birthday and he LOVES it! The only thing better would be a pair. The balance is perfect for so many tricks!

Awesome prop! at first when I practice with this prop it felt a bit weird, then after a while i fell in love with its flow, but I still thought it was dangerous as f**k to light on fire..! Then I finally did it and it blew my mind, absolutely loved it! Very badass fire toy! Iv tried other contact swords, but this was my favorite. Normal fire swords now feel boring and not weighted correctly. Recommended for professional use too.
