This Epic Armoury 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 solid glass-fibre rod is 100 cm long and is strong and flexible. It is ideal for axes and swords.
There are multiple methods to create a LARP weapon, but here are the basics! Carve closed-cell foam into your desired weapon shape and secure it around a clean and sanded Glassfiber Core. The glue will grip a sanded core better and improve durability of your new weapon. Remember to leave a safe amount of foam around the core in order to preserve its safety! When the shape you desire is achieved, dip the weapon into latex and allow 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 80, 100, 120 and 180 cm lengths; and 8, 10 and 15mm diameters.
