For when you must crush your enemies and see them driven before you, you choose the War Mallet from your armoury. With such strength behind your attacks, no one can stand against you on the battlefield--not even the most heavily armoured knight.

For all its simplicity, the War Mallet may actually be your favourite weapon. It's rare you ever choose anything else.

DETAILS

Epic Armoury's War Mallet is a 101 cm latex warhammer uniquely designed to be safer and easier to wield in combat. The War Mallet's head is symmetrical, reaching 20 cm from the haft with two 20 cm diameter faces designed to deliver a fatal blow to your enemies. The head is hollow, making it safer to use and more lightweight than a foam alternative. Sculpted and handpainted to look like a heavy wood mallet, the head is attached to a dark wood-coloured haft 75 cm long.

The haft is made from durable closed cell foam around a fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating. The head is made of strong, flexible latex with an interior foam rod to maintain its shape and keep the head attached to the haft. With regular latex maintenance you can feel confident that your LARP weapon will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your kit.
