You spend a long time deciding what to name your battle axe. It has to be perfect–something that will cause fear in the hearts of your enemies. You originally took the axe from an executioner in the last village you visited, a man whose job was to chop off the heads of thieves.
Perhaps it was not the wisest idea to steal from such a person.
Still, it has a nice ring to it. Executioner.
Epic Armoury’s Executioner is a latex broad axe that has been heavily detailed and handpainted to intimidate your enemies. The axe is 85 cm long with a spiral haft and a 24 cm handle wrapped in split-leather for a comfortable grip. The axe-head is carved with bronze markings and is 15 cm wide, with a long 30 cm curved edge. At the bottom is a claw-like pommel carved and painted to match the axe blade.
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 kit.
- First hafted axe was created about 6,000 B.C. using birch-tar and raw-hide lashings to fix the blade to its handle
- Many battle axes doubled as tools and were cheaper to make than swords
