Epic Armoury’s 100 cm Nightmare Blade is a hybrid LARP sword with unique and asymmetric detail, designed for the greatest of barbarians. Featuring a notched and worn 63 cm blade with a long ridge and a decorated ricasso, the Nightmare Blade is a longsword handmade and hand painted to look like real steel with antique gold embellishments. The pommel is shaped like a scent stopper, decorated in gold diamond-shaped ridges.
The Nightmare’s blade is made out of soft EVA foam around a solid fibreglass rod core–chosen for its durability and safety. It is coated with latex for its smooth appearance and to minimize shredding. The 37 cm handle is made of polyurethane for its high detail, and the 17 cm grip is wrapped in leather.
