Epic Armoury’s Landsknecht Rondel is a solid 46 cm. dagger inspired by the mercenary Landsknechts of the Hansa State era. Whether your LARP-character is a conniving scoundrel who's trade is skulduggery & espionage or simply just a rogue on the run, this dagger is for you. It features a 28 cm. blade with a central ridge and a fine wood-like handle protected by a cross guard in the shape of a twisted bronze ring. The bronze coloured pommel is rounded, designed as a basic interpretation of a knight’s “rondel dagger”. When fighting enemies close-quarter in heavy plate armour, daggers like this would have been used to force between the joints.
Special care has been taken to ensure that our LARP weapons are safe. This dagger was constructed around a solid fibreglass rod core and a flexible kevlar tip to prevent punctures. Its latex finish requires some maintenance to maximize its use and your wellbeing.
The German ‘Landsknechts’ were feared soldiers on 16th Century battlefields and had a reputation for remorceless violence
It was said that the devil refused to let Landsknechts into hell, because he was so afraid of them
You slide your Thief Gloves over your hands. Dexterous fingers need the freedom to move, and these gloves protect your hands without sacrificing your ability to pick even the most trickiest of locks.
Such a lock sits before you, carefully wrought and designed, and you work your lock picks with expertise. With a decisive ‘click!’ the lock comes undone and you open the chest to reveal the most beautiful gem you’ve ever before seen.
Epic Armoury’s Brown Thief Gloves are fingerless leather gloves with short cuffs. They are made from brown leather and stitched at all joints around the fingers, wrists and edges. This stitching improves the strength of the material by preventing it from deforming with heavy use or from exposure to the environment. The fit of the gloves can be adjusted with leather lacing up the cuff.
These gloves are fully compatible with other Epic Armoury metal and leather items and particularly match our more cunning designs. Their low-fantasy look and moderate style can be used with a multitude of settings, allowing freedom to create your own unique costume.
Available in sizes Small, Medium, Large, and X-Large; and colours Epic Black and Brown.
