Your Dai Katana was handed to you by your master, many years ago. It had been a bittersweet moment for you, because while it meant you had overcome all obstacles in your training, it also meant that it was time to set out on your own.
You find the hard leather along the handle comforting, your hand finding its usual well-worn grip. As a traveling samurai–a ronin–your sword is your only consistent companion.
You look beyond the campfire where a fresh fish now cooks, sizzling in the heat, looking to the flickering shadows along the treeline. You have the sense that tonight you and your sword may once again be tested as you hear the unmistakable snap of a twig, your grip on the sword tightening in anticipation.
The Epic Armoury Dai Katana features a distinctive Asian appearance with a curved, slender, single-edged blade and a squared guard. The long handle wrapped in durable leather accommodates two hands and a firm, comfortable grip while on the battlefield. 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 Asian-inspired kit.
- Traditionally used by samurai of feudal Japan
- Designed to be drawn from the sheath quickly to accommodate combat that required fast response times
