The best made blades are forged by the most skilled swordsmiths, the metal worked with such precision and care that the edge can cut through flesh so cleanly that a person might not even know they are dead.

You have commissioned a swordsmith to craft you a Tanto. Before he is paid you want to be certain it is a properly made blade, and so you conduct a test. You produce a silken sheet, allowing it to descend lightly onto the Tanto's edge. The sheet is cut cleanly, not a thread mismatched.

The blade is perfect.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury's Tanto is one of the smaller latex weapons in the Asian Universe collection. Inspired by a historical weapon of Japan, the Tanto goes perfectly with a samurai's set of swords. The 26 cm is straight with a single-edge, meeting a small oval crossguard that protects the 10 cm handle wrapped in split-leather.

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 Asian-inspired kit.

Available in Gold, Silver, and Copper.

HISTORY

  • Traditionally used by samurai of feudal Japan
  • Designed to be drawn from the sheath quickly to accommodate combat that required fast response times
  • Paired with a katana or wakizashi by samurai to display social power and personal honor
