You admire the Viking Spear that belonged to your father. The great warrior sailed his last voyage, but your brethren still managed to bring back his weapon specially for you. For that, at least, you are grateful.

Looking down upon the sharpened, freshly cleaned steel, you wonder what this spear has seen. Carried on countless travels, this spear may have shed blood raiding the English coast, been tarnished under the sun of Spain, and used in defense of Miklagard.

One day you will add to its story.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury's Viking Spear is a 190 cm latex spear with a long, leaf-shaped ridged spearhead. Handpainted and sculpted to give it a realistic look, the Viking Spear's 40 cm spearhead appears to be attached to a long pole with metal bolts. A crossguard is attached to the head to protect your grip along the dark wood-coloured pole, while a matching metal pommel can be used to strike unsuspecting opponents when the spearhead is busy.

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
