STAND FAST AND DEPLOY HALBARDS!
Epic Armoury’s Soldier’s Halberd is a 190 cm latex poleaxe inspired by a weapon used during the late medieval period. The Halberd’s axe-like head has a 36 cm blade for chopping, a long spear for piercing, and a claw-like spike for grappling. The axe-head is specially reinforced to make the weapon durable and versatile. Handpainted and sculpted to appear realistic, detailed metal and bolts run along the pole, with a sheen that makes it appear like polished steel.
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.
