Epic Armourys Wakizashi is a high-quality latex short sword favoured by both deadly ninja assassins and samurai alike. The 40 cm straight blade is single-edged, handpainted to look like real metal. A small oval crossguard protects the 15 cm handle, which is bound in menuki-style using durable 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.
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.
