This 8mm diameter core is 80 cm long and solid glass-fibre. This makes for the strong and flexible core ideal for building your own short swords, axes and maces in foam and latex. Take your time to clean and sand the core before use; the glue will grip a sanded core better and improve the durability of your new favourite weapon. The series of Epic Armoury DIY articles equips you to make your dreams of a foam and latex design come to life, while letting you benefit from the quality materials used in an Epic Armoury Weapon.
