This Epic Armoury Foam on Glassfiber Core is one of our DIY products used to create your own Live Action Role Playing weapon, while still benefiting from the safety of an Epic Armoury blade. The 10mm Ø glass-fibre core is 140 cm long and is strong, flexible and fitted with our Kevlar Tip protection to prevent potential accidents. A 100cm long foam block is securely fastened around the core, leaving a 40 cm gap at the end of the core for the handle. The block is 6 cm across and 3 cm tall, and is made from closed-celled foam that feels soft, light and durable.

Directions for use:

There are multiple methods to create your own LARP weapon, but this is one basic way that we can suggest! Carefully carve the foam block into your desired weapon shape using a knife or sandpaper. Remember to leave a safe amount of foam around the core in order to preserve its safety! When the shape you desire is achieved, clean (and dry!) and dip the weapon into latex. Allow the latex to dry between layers for a smooth, protective surface.

Coat your latex equipment with a thin layer of silicone to prevent the surface from drying out, and to prolong the lifespan of your weapon. Always check your weapon for damage before and after each use. Wrap the handle with leather or cloth for a finished look.

Available in 75cm, 85cm, 110cm, 140cm, and 180cm lengths.

  • Maintenance

    All latex-coated weapons need a certain degree of maintenance. For this we recommend using maintenance silicone, which can be purchased separately in the LARP Accessories section. Epic Armoury Maintenance Silicone is an easy, spray-on application, 100% pure and acid-free making it safe to apply. We recommend using Maintenance Silicone on a regular basis. It maintains the latex-coat’s flexibility and prevents it from drying out, keeping the product wear and tear resistant.

    Store your latex weapons flat or on its pommel--NEVER on its tip. Use a simple sheet or towel lining to prevent it from touching a plastic or rubber surface to prevent your weapon from adhering to other products. Keep your weapons in a cool, dry environment.

    Tents: Shipping tents are more costly than the average product from www.epicarmoury.com, which is why they do not apply for our bulk discount. Unfortunately, we do not currently ship tents to countries outside the European Union without a beforehand agreed upon shipping cost. If you live outside the European Union and wish to purchase a tent, please contact us at info@epicarmoury.com for a shipping quote. We are working towards a solution that will allow everyone to order tents, including shipping directly from our webshop. Before purchasing a tent, we highly recommend that you scrutinise local rules and regulations for the usage of recreational tents.
