Chainmail has become popular on the battlefield, protecting soldiers from sharp blades and arrows. But you are clever. A soldier in chainmail has every reason to fear you, because metal ring armour will do nothing against the blunt force of your Warhammer.
While you might be one of the thousands of soldiers on the field, you are still considered a skilled threat with the help of such a mighty weapon.
Epic Armoury’s Warhammer is an 85 cm latex warhammer inspired by weapons of the late medieval period. This particular hammerhead is a slightly larger imitation with a smaller spike, specifically designed for a fantasy appearance and regard for larp safety. The hammer’s face is octagonal, and is 7 cm long from the haft. The claw-like spike is 10 cm long. With handpainted and sculpted detail, this hammer is designed to look like worn dark wood. The 20 cm handle is wrapped in brown split leather for a superior 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 kit.
