You glare out into the mists, gazing into this clouded world far above land and sea. You have traveled so far and overcome great challenges and dangers--even found a means to fly!--only to be thwarted. Somewhere in the mists waits the legendary Aether Dao, but it is elusive and you are lost.
You begin to wonder if the journey was all for nothing, when you remember some advice you once received. ‘Your will is your strongest asset,’ the elder had said. With this in mind, you begin to call for the sword and you feel something--somewhere--shift.
Epic Armoury’s Aether Dao 100 cm is a latex-hybrid weapon inspired by the ‘General of Weapons’ – a curved sword traditional in Chinese culture. It features a single-edged blade bursting with purple, glowing power. The blade is slightly curved with a fake-edge meant to improve its piercing effectiveness, and attaches to the beautifully detailed polyurethane handle. This purple handle is shaped to look like carved stone and steel with a ring shaped pommel, matching the overall intricate design.
While Asian-inspired, the Aether Dao also features a high-fantasy look that can be used in alternative settings. 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.
