One Thursday evening in 2002, at a party for roleplayers, SFX specialist Kristoffer Benzon was shown an English-produced latex sword. Five minutes later, he proclaimed to that he could do it better, and that if this was the standard, he would create the best latex weapons the world had seen. I remember the evening well - since I was there and was one of those who laughed the hardest. I stopped laughing years ago and instead starting buying - and I wasn't the only one. Because what began as a dream in Kristoffer's head soon turned into the business venture that is Palnatoke, and before long Kristoffer and his partner in dreams Kim Fenger were producing swords from their workshop at Krimsvej. And even though the world of roleplaying has evolved immensely since 2002, Palnatoke has never once left its place at the front of the field when it comes to producing latex weapons.
Almost all LARP weapons are made from a foam that is then covered in a plasticised acrylic-latex paint. If not maintained, this paint eventually dries out and can flake or crack. To avoid, a silicon outer coat is applied to all weapons but is slowly worn off as the weapon strikes other weapons, shields and armour. Maintenance spray ensures your weapons are kept in the best condition possible by reinforcing this silicon layer and keeping the PAX paint underneath it moist and supple. It should be applied after every combat, or at least once a month.
Available in 150ml or 400ml spray packs, and a 250ml pump pack.
You use the silence as a cloak of armour, masked in the darkness with the help of your Mempo, waiting for the perfect opportunity. You ready your throwing knives, ready to launch your deadly attack when the lord finally emerges from inside the keep. One quick flick of your wrist and the lord breathes his last, you knife hitting its mark...and you vanish, leaving their guards bewildered and afraid.
