Epic Armoury Hybrid - Battleworn Viking Sword - 40in - LARP

HY12430

New product

Is your sword lucky, noble or bloodthirsty - or maybe even treacherous? It is, if it has inherited any skills or personality of previous owners or makers. Maybe it even also has a name like “Millstone-breaker” or “Foot-biter”. The Battleworn Viking Sword is a weapon of status and heirloom, and just as the legendary sword “Skraep”, that was dug up all rusty in the legend of how King Vermund’s son saves Denmark from the Saxons, it might appear to be in bad shape judging by its looks. That is not the case. This 100 cm sword has a 85 cm fullered blade designed to be lightweight while maintaining its structural stability. The crossguard features an intricate serpent-like embellishment. The handle is detailed and 10 cm long, cast and painted to look like realistic leather wrapped around a carved hilt and pommel. unique painted and sculpted detail effects such as rust stains, nicks and scratches.

IMPORTANT - SYSTEM COMPATIBILITY

These 'Epic Armoury Hybrid' weapons have a pommel and crossguard made from polyurethane foam. They are more durable than standard foam and latex, but harder than traditional LARP weapons. The blade is made from traditional soft foam and latex.

Please bear this in mind and check the safety rules for your LARP system carefully. Returns will not be accepted for hybrid weapons that do not pass individual weapons check requirements. These do not pass safety at the Lorien Trust, Curious Pastimes or Profound Decisions events.

However, they are still excellent for cosplay, theatrical and film purposes and any LARP that does not require soft foam on the pommel.

HISTORY

  • Originally a Frankish design
  • Most swords of this design found in Scandinavia were imported or looted from the Frankish Empire
  • A fuller, or the groove that runs the length of the blade, was added to weapons to lighten the blade while adding structural strength

MAINTENANCE

Read our 'LARP Weapon Maintenance' article HERE!

All latex-coated weapons need a certain degree of maintenance. For this we recommend using maintenance silicone, which can be purchased separately in the 'Weapon Maintenance & Repair' section.

'Larp Inn Weapon Lube - Silicone Spray' is an easy, spray-on application, 100% pure and acid-free making it safe to apply. We recommend using 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.
