Caprine Sword 100 cm (MCI-3518)
Caprine Sword 135 cm (MCI-3536)
A Blade for the Hearty and Agile Fighter
Epic Armoury’s 39"/100 cm Caprine Sword is a hybrid LARP sword inspired by fantasy and designed to fit in the hands of the mountainous rangers we so love. Featuring an impressive 26 in/66 cm latex blade with a deep fuller and a scalloped ricasso, the Caprine is a longsword handmade and hand painted to look like real steel with a brass ram hilt. The pommel is sculpted to look like a cloven hoof.
The Caprine Sword’s blade is made out of soft EVA foam around a solid fibreglass rod core--chosen for its durability and safety. It is coated with latex for its smooth appearance and to minimize shredding. The 14"/34 cm handle is made of polyurethane for its high detail, and the 14 cm grip is wrapped in leather.
Inspired by Fantasy
Caprine means resembling or relating to a goat
Commonly referred to as a “broadsword,” which is actually a historically incorrect term
Inspired by the two-handed longsword of the late medieval and Renaissance era
The fuller is a groove along the blade that was meant to lighten the sword
Blade has a strong latex coating with a round fibreglass core
Strong Kevlar core tip protection
Blade is made from durable closed cell foam that does not shred
Handle is a polyurethane foam cast, giving it more detail with no maintenance!
Handle is very durable, will last longer than a latex version, and is less slippery than a silicone treated alternative
High safety, approved by the top organizations
This hybrid weapon’s handle does not require any special maintenance, while the blade has a latex coating which needs a certain degree of maintenance. For this we recommend using silicone spray, which can be purchased from any home improvement store. We recommend using silicone on a regular basis, taking care not to apply the spray to the handle by first wrapping it in plastic-wrap. It maintains the latex-coat’s flexibility and prevents it from drying out, keeping the product wear and tear resistant. Spray on the silicone, wipe off the excvess, and wait 30 minutes.
Store your weapon in a cool, dry environment, and keep your weapon 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.
