Katanas, Scimitars and Sabres are among the most beautiful, most loved and most historically significant swords around. So, it’s no surprise that at nearly every LARP event, many people lament that no one makes curved swords. Those days are gone. Elysian Forge was created by a passionate team of LARPers in Canberra, Australia who figured out how to make reliable curved fibreglass cores, and magnificently detailed, expertly finished LARP weapons of all sorts, where an exotically shaped core would mean a more effective weapon. Our ever-expanding range of products include many curved swords such as the full size range of Japanese swords, Indo-Persian Shamshir, Indian Tulwar, European Sabre, Egyptian Khopesh, as well as “core-through-head” Axes, and more to come. The dark ages of LARP weapons being limited by straight cores is over. Welcome to the Elysian age of LARP weapons!
Forging ones own blade is an epic and noble undertaking. Fraught with problems of sourcing only the finest (and game legal) materials, we are now able to offer Epic Armoury's own cores. Strong, sturdy and felixble, when combined with Epic Armoury's plastazote foam these will form the basis of any melee weapon you could possibly wish to create.
Please note that these cores are not suitable for creating projectile weaponry. Of Science & Swords and Epic Armoury carry no responsibility for injury or mishap that may occur as a result of attempting to create your own weaponry.
This Epic Armoury Glassfiber Core is one of our DIY products used to create your own Live Action Role Playing weapon, while still benefiting from the safety of an Epic Armoury blade. This 8mm Ø glass-fibre core is 80 cm long and is strong and flexible.
Directions for use:
There are multiple methods to creating a LARP weapon, but here are the basics! Carve closed-cell foam into your desired weapon shape and secure it around a clean and sanded Glassfiber Core. The glue will grip a sanded core better and improve durability of your new weapon. Remember to leave a safe amount of foam around the core in order to preserve its safety! When the shape you desire is achieved, dip the weapon into latex and allow to dry between layers for a smooth, protective surface.
Coat your latex equipment with a thin layer of silicone to prevent the surface from drying out, and to prolong the lifespan of your weapon. Always check your weapon for damage before and after each use. Wrap the handle with leather or cloth for a finished look.
Leather may be skin, but unlike skin it doesn't have an entire body to keep it repaired. It is constantly being damaged by the same things your own skin is, inclement weather and rain, UV radiation, being attacked by stray orcs.
After a while it can become battle worn and damaged.
Which is why you need Kiwi Dave's Leather Balsam!
Kiwi Dave's Leather Balsam gently nourishes leather like a good moisturising cream will nourish your own skin. It's soft, easy to apply, and can be left to soak in overnight, leaving your leather looking great in the morning! And it helps keep it water resistant, too!
Use it on your armour, leggings, pouches, suspiciously eye-and-mouth-hole-free leather helmet, quivers, couches, motorcycle jacket, whatever!
How do you think that we, the Swiss people, were able to keep the peace in our lands, free from invaders and wars, through all the scarring conflicts of the Renaissance? While the French were fighting with straight swords, and southerners with curved ones, we had a great advantage: their blades never reached their foes. Our halberds kept the best knights at bay, and a simple battle formation could stop the most persistent riders.
The solution was really that simple. Put a longer shaft behind the blade, and you’ll stay alive longer. With our halberds, we will surely be able to keep the peace in our lands for centuries to come!
Calimacil’s halberd head gets revamped! Safe as always with its almost indestructible foam, softer than regular Calimacil weapons, its appearance becomes more realistic than ever, with a forged metal texture and steel-coloured blade. Some silver highlights complete the illusion. It is possible to mount this halberd head on multiple shafts, like bamboo and PVC, so any character can be at home with one of these weapons.
Special thanks to Drakuler Dragon who suggested this name on our Facebook page.
Bodyguards and militiamen alike will like the halberd as a social and military status, and wise fighters will be able to keep their enemies at bay with its reach. Moreover, every armed garrison wanting to battle knights would be smart to use those weapons, as they are perfect to stop any charge and horse

The best defence in life means nothing if it is eaten away by time and the elements, or even attacked from the inside. And so it is with your own armour! Humidity, expansion and contraction in the heat, UV radiation, rain, and the withering blows of your enemies all conspire to expose your armour to rust, but worse yet, your very own precious bodily fluids conspire to corrode it from the inside with their impurities and corruption! (which is why we only ever drink pure grain alcohol or rainwater)
You could coat your armour (and other metal objects) in a regular run of the mill lubricant, but many of them are actively hydrophobic. Great for metal but terrible for leather, cotton and other organic materials!
Lanox MX4 is a lanolin rich lubricant, and lanolin is the oil that is naturally produced by sheep to prevent them from shrinking in the rain and generally remain weather proof! It is superior to many artificial compounds and does not damage leathers or organic fibres.
