Preferred Arms was founded by Robb Hunter, a Certified Fight Director and Teacher for the Society of American Fight Directors to create a reliable and professional resource dedicated to providing quality weapons exclusively for use on stage and screen.
Actors often have to deal with weapons that are not only wrong for a particular production but also woefully inadequate and even dangerous to use. Stories abound in the “industry” of broken swords flying into an audience because they were cheaply obtained or poorly maintained. Although even the strongest and most well crafted steel sword can break, these instances should be extraordinarily rare. Our job at Preferred Arms is to ensure that your actors, audience, and crew are as safe as possible, while making your production look its best.
