Fire

All of our fire equipment and loose wicks use 100% Para-Aramid fibre.
Generic Para-Aramid is often incorrectly referred to as Kevlar® which was originally created by DuPont in 1965. Only para aramid fibre produce by Dupont can be called Kevlar®. The technical name for Kevlar® is Para-Aramid.
Para-Aramid is a very strong, heat resistant synthetic fibre which is woven into strips and used for all good fire wicks. This is the best known material for fire props and, unlike inferior wicks using glass fibre or even asbestos, it is durable, inert and completely non- toxic in normal use.
Please note: Para-Aramid is heat resistant, not fire proof. To extend the life of your fire wicks we suggest you use only Paraffin. Avoid using alcohol based fuels as these burn at higher temperature and will degrade the wicks faster.

A lot of the cheaper Aramid products on the market have fibreglass mixed in with the kevlar- the fibreglass does not absorb the fuel and tends to turn silver and dry up with time. If this happens, we recommend you replacing your wick with a purer grade of wick.

  • Gora Fire Whip - 3m

    Gora Fire Whip - 3m

    We're very proud to offer the 3m Fire Whip made by Gora, Hungary. The Whip itself is made from 5 different braided para-aramid ropes and a serious cracker (replaceable). The handle has been carefully crafted from aluminium and covered in heatproof silicone for added safety. In addition, the whip handle is mounted with a heat shield. At the core of the whip is a fibreglass rod which becomes thinner along the shaft to help give that special flexibility. There is no need to fill up the root of the whip - this model generates plenty of flame and excessive fuel by the handle is potentially dangerous to the user and the whip itself. It's also important not to put the whip down (unless absolutely neccersary) whilst it is on fire.


    Whips are performance props - not toys - and should never be used in an environment where people could be hurt. A whip on fire is even more dangerous! This whip is only available to responsible adults and should only be used after adequate safety training and in an appropriate environment under supervision.

    -Dont practice with the Fire Whip. The dry cracking make the kevlar tired and will reduce the lifetime.

    -You don't need to fill up the root of the whip, there will be a huge fire anyway, it would just make your hand hurt and would damage the heat shield. Also looks silly when you still have a little burning part at the root while the rest of whip is burned off.

    - Dont dip the fall, it will reduce the lifetime but give no bigger effect.

    -Don't put down the whip while it is burning. If you put it on a concrete or stone or metal surface the flames will heat up the surface and damage the kevlar.

    -Never use benzine or white gas, it is too dangerous and will kill your whip.

    -Always check the condition of the whip very cerefully before light up. If there is a serious damage on the whip it can fly off from a crackling and injure the audiance.

    Warning: Fire whips are fragile tools with a limited lifespan. They are not suitable for practice and should only be used for performances. Even if used very carefully, the whip's lifespan will not exceed 50 burns. Due to the sensitive nature of this product, it is not covered by a warranty.



    Please note that whilst very robust, Gora props contain some components and materials that will perish if exposed to constant flames. As such, Gora props should be held horizontally - not vertically - when lit. Learn More

  • Gora Dragon Staff - 8 headed

    Gora Dragon Staff - 8 headed

    1 Review(s)

    Dragon staff is a very different style of staff which is based on the ancient Chinese martial arts weapon Fei cha.

    The dragon staff shares many moves with contact staff but the spinning spokes at each end make it unique. These fire spokes spin very quickly while the staff itself moves relatively slowly. This gives a fascinating effect which cannot be achieved with any other fire staffs.
    Both the spokes and main staff are all made of very strong and lightweight aluminium alloy. The spokes can be unscrewed for easier transportation and storage.
    Dragon Staffs should be used responsibly with care, respect and caution.

  • Gora 'Spike' Fire Staff - 1.5m / 100mm ( including 6pc Fire Head Spike )

    Gora 'Spike' Fire Staff - 1.5m / 100mm ( including 6pc Fire Head Spike )

    1 Review(s)
    This is the most budget- and travel friendly 2-in-1 combination of a contact staff and a dragonstaff. Basically it is a Fire Contact Staff with 3-3 rivet nuts on both sides. These nuts allow for the attachment of 3-3 fireheads, which converts your contact staff into an 8-headed (3+1)+(3+1) dragon. The spikes are the same as the standard Gora Fire Hoop heads. The Spiked Contact Staff, used as a dragonstaff weighs 1150 g which is medium weight: It is lighter than a 10-headed dragon (= contact staff + adapter + heads) but heavier than a 8-headed (4+4) dragon. A good contact staff must have a good momentum, which is only possible if the ends are heavy, while the middle part is light. The body of the staff is made from a "Space Tech" aluminum alloy 7075, which has the same tensile strength as steel, but is light and flexible like aluminum, so it never breaks or bends. In case of choosing a collapsible version of the spiked contact staff you can choose a carbon fiber tube middle part (22X1.5mm) to increase momentum. The handling surface is covered with our 3.2 mm thick SuperGrip©. It has a soft spongy underlayer and a sticky, dotted overlayer which does not get slippery when wet. Over the years we have tested many versions and this by far provides the best hold even when your body sweats, and is also suitable for contact staff players with sensitive skin or allergies. The weight middle-point is clearly marked. The flowers slow down the rolling movement of the staff a bit. Furthermore, the rubber gives additional weight for the spin. You can remove and reattach them as you like. The staff has silicone protectors near the fireheads. In general, if you make a mistake with moving the contact staff, the heated metal can cause serious fire burns but this will not happen as the silicone parts are there to protect you. The black colour silicone has the highest heat resistance! The Classic fireheads on our contact staff are made from 10 cm wide kevlar wick and you can choose between 3 sizes. You can also opt for special fireheads which are knotted from kevlar rope in 3 designs: Isis fireheads made from 6 ropes, Wicker fireheads made from 4 thicker ropes or Monkey Fist fireheads which results in a ball shape. All three knotted designs give a beautiful and large flame, however they are more costly to make and more difficult to replace. If for your performance it is important that no excess fuel drops on the ground, we recommend choosing one of these knotted fireheads. On the other hand, for burnoff tricks the Classic fireheads are more suitable. Learn More

  • Gora Thai Staff - Double bladed

    Gora Thai Staff - Double bladed

    The classic recipe of a fire show is “Faster, Higher and MOOORE FIRE!”. Technically, the thai staff is a long spinner staff with an enormous amount of fire! The thai staff is made from a 15 x 1 mm duraluminum tube. It resists the heat of the fire wonderfully and makes a very lightweight prop, however it is somewhat fragile so it is important to take care during transport, i.e. do not step on your thai staff. The handling part in the middle is covered with the SuperGrip® which grants excellent hold. Sillicone Disc protectors save your hands from the huge flames creeping up the staff as long as you keep spinning at least slowly. It is however important you do not perform static, vertical positions especially at the beginning of your show when the flames are still too large and hot! The design of the fire blade is similar to that of the Fire Contact Sword or the Flying Sword. Darth Maul is a long-term user of the Thai Staff and our most hardcore tester. We believe he could have won even this fight against two Jedi, had he used the fire version of the thai staff! Learn More

  • Gora Contact Sword

    Gora Contact Sword

    Designed to combine the disciplines of contact staff and stage fighting, the contact fire sword is a truly unique prop.
    The Gora contact sword can be used for mock fights and spinning just as the standard Gora fire sword but this sword's special weighting shifts the balance point within the handle making contact moves possible.

    The core of the sword is made of aluminium 7075, which keeps weight to a minimum while making sure there is no risk of bending or breaking during normal use. This lightweight material gives the sword an overall weight of just 966g with a total a length of 1260mm.

    Within the pommel of the sword there is a 50mm diameter steel ball counterweight weighing 500g. As this counterweight is more than half of the swords total weight it moves the balance point to roughly halfway down the handle. The precise balance points are marked on the handle for both dry and fully dipped weights as these change as the fuel is burnt.

    The handle is padded with spongy EPDM rubber, covered with Tennis grip tape and shaped to improve control for the player. As with the standard Gora fire sword, the handle is separated from the burning surface by a silicone disc. This protects the handle and reduces the chance of burns to the user. Please note, Silicon is heat resistant, not fire proof. Do not hold the sword in such a way that the silicon is above the flame for any extended period.

    - Take care during transportation. Heavy impacts on the side of the blade may cause damage. - Using hotter burning fuels such as benzene or white gas will reduce the lifetime of the kevlar and may damage the silicone disc.
    - The contact sword is not designed for full contact fighting and will not survive the impact of strong blows.
    - Use very carefully! This is a dangerous prop designed to be used only by skilled contact staff spinners. Only ignite the prop if you have the necessary skill and abliity.

    Specification:
    Length 1260mm
    Weight 966g

Meteor manipulation requires advanced techniques that draw as much on staff manipulation as they do poi flow. Mounted with 2 impressive 'Monkey Fist' style heads, this prop should only be wielded by advanced fire spinners. Handmade by the Gora team to high standards using only official Kevlar® Learn More

  • Gora "TRAVEL" Fire Contact Staff - 1.5m / 100mm Wick - 3 piece

    Gora "TRAVEL" Fire Contact Staff - 1.5m / 100mm Wick - 3 piece

    1 Review(s)

    Gora presents his 150cm travel staff variation of the amazing Gora Contact Staff. The Gora Travel Contact Staff behaves and performs just like the original model but with a little added weight. It is also essential to ensure that the staff is locked in place and secure before spinning with lit fuel. This staff is wrapped in a generous amount of EPDM rubber and sticky tennis grip making ideal for lots of body contact. As with the whole Gora staff range the core is constructed from 7075 aluminium - super strong yet reasonably light. There's also the added bonus of protective black silicone to reduce the amount of exposed metal work. The staff also comes fitted with 2 of Gora's inverted rubber 'Flowers' which are great for slowing the staff down and add a little weight towards the end of the staff giving it great momentum.


    When broken down the two end pieces measure 55cm and the centre piece measures 60cm.

  • Gora Dragon Staff 'Cuff' Adapters (Pair)

    Gora Dragon Staff 'Cuff' Adapters (Pair)

    1 Review(s)

    Gora has been developing his famous Dragon Staff concept since 2002. These Adapter Cuffs are the latest evolution of his design and certainly seem to be the most user-friendly version we've come across.
    The set consists of two detachable cuffs, each with four removable fire heads mounted at 90 degree intervals giving the classic Dragon staff effect. This design allows the cuffs to be permanently mounted on any staff and, once in place, the staff can be used normally or as a dragon staff with minimal assembly and dis-assembly. This system is cost effective (no second staff to buy), means you need only carry one staff and is considerably more convenient to carry than a fixed dragon staff.

    Adapter cuffs can be easily fixed to any staff with a diameter of 25mm or less and work best on longer Staffs (150 - 170mm depending on user height). If you are using a staff thinner than 25mm you'll need to use some tape to increase the diameter of the staff to safely mount the cuffs. We recommend aluminium tape for this. Once attached, the cuffs can be left permanently in place and the staff will play normally with only a slight increase in weight (no bad thing in a contact staff). When you want to play Dragon staff simply slot the fire heads into the corresponding holes in each cuff and away you go. Each fire head slots into the cuff with a push fit making assembly and dis-assembly extremely easy. Each head is held in place with a spring loaded grub screw. For a quick practice sessions you can play without tightening these screws but for a longer session or for fire they must be fixed in place with the allen key supplied.

    Although each fire head stalks is only 8mm diameter they are made from the same 'space tech' 7075 aluminium alloy as Gora's contact staffs. This means they are very lightweight and extremely tough. That said, care must be taken not to damage the stalks or holes at the points where they slot together or you risk permanently jamming the the two together.

    Any fire spinning is potentially dangerous but with 8 extra flaming wicks spinning at each end it becomes even more so. Please take extra care when learning dragon staff. Dragon Staff adapters should be used responsibly with care, respect and caution.
