Geek Chic Hero Sword for Tested Members!

By Norman Chan

How to get your hands on a Hero Sword.

I'm really excited to let you guys know that Geek Chic, the makers of the Hero Sword we modified in our latest One Day Build video, has offered to make a limited run of these awesome wooden swords for Tested members to purchase. Normally, these swords are only made for sale on-site at conventions like PAX and Dragon*Con (at which I believe they'll still be available), but here's a chance for you to pick one up if you can't make it out to those events.

The run is limited, and will be for sale to Tested Premium Members first. I'll be sending out an email to members later this afternoon with instructions on how to make a purchase if you're interested, so please be on the lookout for that. The swords are $100 each, and shipping is a very reasonable $5 for US residents, $10 for Canada, and $15 International. A pretty great deal, in my opinion. From Geek Chic: "Hero Swords are handmade, hardwood American Cherry swords with Black Walnut crossguards and pommels. The emblem is engraved on Maple. The whole piece is sealed with a durable conversion varnish."

(Update: And we've sold out of the swords! Thanks to everyone who participated in the offering, and hope to see your sword modification photos when you get them. -Norm)
