Epic Armoury’s Merchant Suede Bag is a large, flat leather belt pouch. The bag is closed by securing the full-grain leather strap and brass buckle. Two 8 cm leather loops on the back allow the bag to be attached to your belt.
The bag is made from dyed split-leather and is stitched around the edges with flattened leather cord to ensure a product that will withstand the abuse of a LARP or reenactment. When adding the final touches to any multitude of characters, this Merchant Suede Bag is a neutral solution that will last a long time.
Historically referred to and used like a “pocket” before pockets were added to clothing
Pouches worn at the belt have been found in Swedish and English burial sites pre-dating 1000 A.D.
Your squire buckles the straps of your custom-fit armour, adjusting it to be comfortable and snug over your gambeson. Then you are handed your piece-de-resistance: the Noble Sword. You paid top coin for this sword, and you expect people will be impressed when they see how it shines on the battlefield.
Your blacksmith assured you that the Noble Sword’s design was both effective and awe-inspiring, and you’re one to agree. You are a mighty warrior, indeed, to be the owner of such fine craftsmanship. A fitting symbol of your godly-given status.
This bestselling Epic Armoury Noble Sword is a longsword with a distinctive rapier-inspired hilt. The sword is 110 cm long from point to pommel, with a slim 85 cm double-edged blade. The piece-de-resistance is the cross-guard: a supported bar to catch slashing strikes and a mesh of elegantly circled wire to stop thrusting attacks. The long handle is wrapped in black split-leather and allows one or two-handed use, and is topped by an elegantly carved pommel.
This longsword has the look of a classical renaissance sword and can be used in almost any setting you require, especially if you are looking for refinement or the look of a seasoned veteran.
Commonly referred to as a “broadsword,” which is actually a historically incorrect term
Similar to the “cut & thrust swords” popular in the late 16th century, but with a longer handle
