Your elven ears hear the rustle of footsteps behind you. A smile crosses your delicate lips as you realize a stranger is attempting to sneak up on someone as lithe and alert as you. You are the kindred of the immortals, having honed your skills for hundreds of years. No normal mortal being can surprise you.
“Come out of hiding,” you call over your shoulder. “I know you are there.”
As you hear the ‘thwap!’ of an archer’s bow, you spin and dodge the incoming arrow, unsheathing your Elven Short Sword in one fluid motion. The fight has begun.
This bestselling Epic Armoury Elven Short Sword is a sleek curved blade with carved ornamentation. The sword is 60 cm long with a 40 m long single-edged and slightly curved blade. With a small round cross-guard above a 10 cm long oval-shaped handle, enjoy a comfortable and improved grip due to the additional split-leather wrap. The pommel is shaped to be as dangerous as the blade, with additional matching ornamentation.
The Elven Short Sword is distinctly elven in style, and is easily compatible with Epic Armoury’s other elven range of blades, bows, armour and clothes. Made from durable closed cell foam around a solid 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 elf-inspired kit.
