Improvised Weapon Proficiency
Dark Moon’s Steel Pipe Sap is a 40 cm latex pipe, handpainted to look like steel with a worn, rusted finish. This improvised short weapon goes beyond a simple metal pipe, with intricately sculpted details to give it a realistic appearance. Fine sculpted tread embellishes each end of the bar and a 7 cm external coupling is fitted to the top like a small mace head. Comfortable 12 cm long suede leather is wrapped around the bottom, providing a secure grip when the gore is too thick.
Post-apocalyptic plumbers looking for piping material are advised that this item may be better for fighting than crafting. The Steel Pipe Sap is not hollow, but is constructed from EVA foam around a solid fibreglass rod and a strong kevlar core tip. Safety is important and incorporated in this design–because we don’t actually want you to hurt your friends dressed up as amazing zombies! It is finished with a durable layer of latex to prevent shredding and to give it a realistic, smooth surface.
When You Run Out of Bullets
- An example of a weapon you might find after the world-as-we-know-it ends
- Used as protection when you’ve inevitably run out of bullets for your gun
- Pipes are straight cylinders typically used to move liquids and gases, and require fittings such and elbows, tees, and couplings
- An ironic weapon of choice for many LARPers who have built boffers with plumbing supplies over the years
