So I want to start building my sword and I was curious what kind of cores were legal. Is it possible for there to be a metal core, or should I stick with pvc? Do any of you have recommendations for different cores? I'm worried it'll be super bendy if I use pvc.

Do not make weapons with metal or wood cores of any kind. Plastic, carbon fiber, or fiberglass are all fine. Cores need to be both lightweight and fairly stiff, but with some give.

This is a very good core for martial length weapons and below. This wouldn't be a sufficient core for weapons longer than 45 inches.
