A knife for war you say, boy? The Germans have a word for that...


Your Kriegsmesser cuts down another goblin, leaving him in a pile of his buddies. They miscalculated your massive strength, and are reeling backwards on the retreat. They have learned too late that attacking your group in the night would mean death. It’s too bad they won’t be able to share the word with their kin.

You adjust your shortsword, letting out a battle cry of rage as another goblin aims for your ankles. This one goes flying into several different places.


Epic Armoury’s Kriegsmesser is a latex shortsword inspired by the mercenary Landsknechts of the Renaissance era. The 40 cm single-edged blade is slim with a 22 cm long fuller running along the ridge. An angular crossguard and seashell-shaped nagel provides additional protection to the 12 cm handle, which is ergonomically shaped and wrapped in split-leather for superior comfort.

Made from durable closed cell foam around a fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, you can feel confident that your LARP weapon will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your kit.
