You are laughing too loud. You realize it must be scaring your enemy, because no one wants to face you on the frontline anymore. They think you are crazed. Maybe you are, because the adrenaline of being in a battle has left you feeling drunk with exhilaration.

If no one will come to you, it's time to bring the fight to them! One poor soldier desperately strikes at you and you feel the thud of his sword against your armour, but it hardly makes a scratch. You see the terror in his eyes as your laugh fills the field and you bring the strength of your Viking Short Axe down upon him.

You are Raynor Ironshood. Let them fear you. Let them all fear you.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury's new improved version of the bestselling Viking Short Axe is reinforced to make it even more durable. The axe-head has a 18 cm edge and a golden embellishment that matches the pommel. The handle is 45 cm long and carved to look like rough wood grain without a specific grip, encouraging the user to make use of the axe's versatile design.

Neutral in style and manoeuvrable enough to be used with almost any other product in the Epic Armoury collection, this latex axe is the perfect addition to any character--particularly a Viking or Dwarf. 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.

HISTORY

  • First hafted axe was created about 6,000 B.C. using birch-tar and raw-hide lashings to fix the blade to its handle
  • Many battle axes doubled as tools and were cheaper to make than swords
