Dear Customer 

The Stronghold Master Collection has been marketed as maintenance free, but we have recently learned that the paint finish on the blades will be damaged due to friction caused by the soft density of the foam upon impact. After additional tests, we have found out that a coating of Epic Armoury Maintenance Silicone spray or Protection Gel, reduces this friction and preserves the finish. Marks on the weapons are to be expected, especially the darker tinted ones, after prolonged usage even with a protective coating. But these occur far sooner than they should.

We want to make clear that this issue only affects the paint finish of the blade and not the integrity of the foam itself. This does however, in our eyes, means that we cannot in full honesty say that these swords are maintenance free. We are usually very diligent and thorough with our testing, but this issue was not discovered in our initial product tests, and for that we apologize.

We will no longer be marketing the Stronghold Master Collection as maintenance free. Those of you that have already bought Stronghold Master Collection swords before July 2nd, you will be eligible to either a refund or a compensation as described below.
