A Powerful Chopping Blade
Epic Armoury’s Panabas is a 140 cm long LARP sword inspired by the southern Philippines. Featuring a forward curving 75 cm latex blade, the Panabas is a tribal weapon that is great for your Ruinous character! Handmade and hand painted to look like real metal and wood, it is made out of soft EVA foam around a 12 mm solid fibreglass rod core–chosen for its durability and safety. It is coated with latex for its smooth appearance and to minimize shredding.
The Panabas is sculpted to look like a long, axe-like blade that has been heavily notched from war. The 37 cm handle grip is textured like a real wooden staff, with the suggestion of leather binds around its ends. It’s perfect for orcs and barbarians of all sorts.
