The War Sythe is one of the fabled weapons of Japanese origin that originated as a farm tool. It takes the shape of a small, handheld scythe. The War Sythe features a wood-looking shaft with a wicked, curved blade attached to the top. This Sythe is made using an extremely durable foam that does not shred, which has been sealed with a strong coating of latex. This LARP weapon is made using a round, flexible fiberglass core that features a Kevlar capped tip for protection from punch-through. The handle also features a simple suede wrap, which makes it easy and comfortable to wield for long periods of time.
NOTE: The blade is made of foam, so do not hook and pull with the blade!!!
