A Blade for the Hearty and Agile FighterEpic Armoury’s 100 cm Caprine Sword is a hybrid LARP sword inspired by fantasy and designed to fit in the hands of the mountainous rangers we so love. Featuring a long 66 cm latex blade with a deep fuller and a scalloped ricasso, the Caprine is a longsword handmade and hand painted to look like real steel with a brass ram hilt. The pommel is sculpted to look like a cloven hoof.
The Caprine Sword’s blade is made out of soft EVA foam around a 10 mm solid fibreglass rod core--chosen for its durability and safety. It is coated with latex for its smooth appearance and to minimize shredding. The 34 cm handle is made of polyurethane for its high detail, and the 14 cm grip is wrapped in leather.
Inspired by Fantasy
- Caprine means resembling or relating to a goat
- Commonly referred to as a “broadsword,” which is actually a historically incorrect term
- Inspired by the two-handed longsword of the late medieval and Renaissance era
- The fuller is a groove along the blade that was meant to lighten the sword
