Forging ones own blade is an epic and noble undertaking. Fraught with problems of sourcing only the finest (and game legal) materials, we are now able to offer Epic Armoury's own cores. Strong, sturdy and felixble, when combined with Epic Armoury's plastazote foam these will form the basis of any melee weapon you could possibly wish to create.
Please note that these cores are not suitable for creating projectile weaponry.
Of Science & Swords and Epic Armoury carry no responsibility for injury or mishap that may occur as a result of attempting to create your own weaponry.
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. This 8mm Ø glass-fibre core is 80 cm long and is strong and flexible.
Directions for use:
There are multiple methods to creating 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.
