With the mainstream popularity of franchises like Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones, live action role-playing, or LARPing, has grown immensely in popularity, and start-up company 'Change Blade' is taking advantage. One of the most important parts of a good LARP event is battling, and a good battle requires good weapons. Rather than buying a cheap dollar store sword, spending countless hours hand-crafting a good foam weapon, or burning a sizable sum for a professionally made implement, Change blade provides customizable, interchangeable and affordable weapons.

Change Blade weapons come with three interchangeable parts: the blade, the hilt and the pommel. Each of these sections comes with several options designed by Change Blade and consumers can order individual parts as they desire, offering hundreds, if not thousands of possible weapon styles.

Change Blade's customizable weaponry lets LARPers more fully immerse themselves in their experiences.
