Epic Armourys Guandao is a 170 cm latex polearm inspired by Chinese martial arts. Similar to a Japanese naginata or a European glaive, this guandao features a large 69 cm blade and 80 cm long staff. Hand painted and sculpted, the finished result is a beautiful weapon with a long single-edged spearhead. Sculpted golden details give additional character where the spearhead meets the red leather wrapped pole. Add a ring or a scrap of fabric through the hole in the blade to set it apart from the crowd.
Made from durable closed cell foam around a fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, you can feel confident that your Guandao LARP weapon will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your kit.
All latex-coated weapons need a certain degree of maintenance. For this we recommend using maintenance silicone which can be purchased separately. Epic Armoury Maintenance Silicone is an easy, spray-on application, 100% pure and acid-free making it safe to apply. We recommend using Maintenance Silicone on a regular basis. It maintains the latex-coats flexibility and prevents it from drying out, keeping the product wear and tear resistant.
Store your latex weapons flat or on its pommel–NEVER on its tip. Use a simple sheet or towel lining to prevent it from touching a plastic or rubber surface to prevent your weapon from adhering to other products. Keep your weapons in a cool, dry environment.
Please Note: Handpainted Item – Color of weapon, including blade may vary
This weapon is made from foam and is designed for safe sport and roleplay with discretion. It also is quite suitable as a prop for costume and cosplay.
