The sunrise peeks over the horizon long after you are already awake and practicing your sword drills. A jianke must practice daily with the Jian War Sword to become a true master, and you take your duty as a soldier seriously.
As you finish the thousandth practiced cut, slicing through the air with perfect form, you feel a certain peace overcome you. Practicing with your sword is like a form of meditation.
Epic Armoury’s Jian War Sword is a slender and elegant latex weapon designed as part of the Asian Universe collection. The sword is 110 cm long and features a 94 cm straight blade with a 55 cm fuller and rain-guard. The small crossguard is 9 cm wide and oval shaped, protecting the 16 cm ergonomically-shaped handle wrapped in split-leather for a better grip.
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 Chinese-inspired kit.
