When Davos warns it will be dangerous and that he should take one of the swords in the shop, Gendry points out he was never taught to fight properly, and is only good with a war-hammer, which retrieving from the back of the shop a war hammer, a maul with a stag's head design on either side of the haft socket (likely forged himself and referencing his Baratheon roots)
The Celtic double-headed Aidan hammer features a richly ornamented hammer head. Both faces are slightly angled, giving the hammer its unmistakeable character. "Aidan" is both a noble and a brutal foam weapon fits armed clerics, dwarves or Norse characters.
In the Black Dragon series, Italian manufactory Fucina del Drago, famous for their exceptional leather products, have created a foam weapon brand that combines traditional craftsmanship with a fantastic design. The "Black Dragon" foam weapons are 100% handcrafted in Italy. They feature an outer coat of latex varnished with a layer of protective lacquer. Inserts of robust leather guarantee the necessary stability and durability. Carefully painted and with boasting a high-quality leather hilt wrapping, the "Black Dragon" foam weapon range will be a trusty companion for a long time. Please note that each foam weapon is individually crafted by hand, which is why the individual weapons' shape and colour may deviate slightly from the image.
We recommend regular care with silicon oil. Keep your foam weapons clean and dry at all times. Do not store them in a weapon's holder or similar contraption for extended periods of time. Your foam weapon should not be exposed to a lot of heat or direct sunlight for extended periods of time. This could lead to deformations or damage to the surface.
You think about dreaming it, we will take care of making it happen.
Our work briefly translates into this: starting from an idea, a sketch, a story and transforming those smoky lines into an object that can be used in the context (whether strictly historical or fantasy) for which it was designed.
Design therefore, at the base of each project, modulated on the budget of each client.
Realization, with a particular attention to detail and real use (not only display but rather mainly products made to be worn, used, lived).
Assistance, so that everything that has already been created does not suffer the damage of time or the wear and tear of years of use.
Black Dragon is our brand for the design and construction of weapons, armor and props oriented to LARP, Cosplay and film productions.
These are articles made of materials such as plastazote, evazote, resins and the like, used to give shape and substance to the wildest dreams of every designer or to reproduce objects not otherwise available because of fantasy.
It was born from the meeting between the Fucina del Drago and Black Forge, an artisan workshop that has been active for years in the LARP and Cosplay sector at national and international level which, in February 2020, joined forces in the common goal of expanding their work and their skills to offer them on a wider market also linked to film productions.
From this collaboration, projects related to TV series have been born that have benefited from years of experience and tests on materials, at the same time highlighting on the one hand the absolute reachable realism and on the other the possibility of truly shaping the imagination to give shape to things otherwise unattainable.
From the feedback obtained, the push that led us to strongly believe in this new project was born to the point of creating a brand dedicated only to this type of product.
A fundamental component of our work remains attentive listening to the customer and continuous contact in order to be certain not only of the achievement of the final result, but also and above all of full satisfaction: from this point of view it makes no difference that you are a live role player, a cosplayer or a film production company, we will still be able to accompany you from the preparatory sketch to the finished product in order to give you the most precise possible idea of what we are making for you.
