Product information "Hirdsman Throwing Axe"

Beware the herdsman. He may be gentle with the flock he tends, but he protects them as would any warrior protecting their own family.


The Epic Armoury Hirdsman Throwing Axe is a coreless latex throwing weapon inspired by the throwing axes of the early migration period. The fearsome Frankish tribesmen were known for breaking the lines of the Roman legions by throwing these heavy-headed axes, splitting the legionaries’ shields to devastating effect. Epic Armoury’s version has a heavy one-edged blade shaped to look like a mundane garden-variety chestnut-wood-grain decorate utility axe.

The Hirdsman Throwing Axe is a throwing weapon with a flexible core that gives it heft and makes it capable to be used as a proper throwing axe, which is made from durable closed cell foam 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.
