You take refuge in an abandoned garage, looking for a new weapon. That’s when you spot the Sledge Hammer tucked away behind a few old brooms and a broken mop. You give it a test swing, smashing through the remains of an old workbench. Nice. Very nice.

You take refuge in an abandoned fire station, looking for a new weapon. Most people have thought the same thing, because the place is picked clean. You are lucky, however, as you stumble upon an overturned desk. Beneath the mess you find an intact Fire Axe. Giving it a few test swings, you find that you like the weight as it cuts straight through wood. It might be very useful.

This bestselling Epic Armoury Maintenance Silicone is used for maintenance of Live Action Role Playing foam weapons and equipment covered with latex and/or varnish.
Directions for use:
Latex equipment must be coated with a thin layer of silicone at all times. This prevents the surfaces from drying out, and will prolong the lifespan of your latex equipment. Always check your latex equipment before and after each use. Spray the silicone directly onto your latex product and work it into the entire surface (avoiding leather handles) either with a piece of cloth or using a flat hand. If necessary, wipe off any excess with a dry cotton cloth. Always store your latex equipment in a dry and dark place.
Epic Armoury’s Folding Shovel is a 60 cm spade made from foam, handcrafted to imitate an entrenching tool used by the military and survivalists alike. Entrenching shovels like this particular model have been used since WWII, and were considered a necessary part of a soldier’s equipment. They were even considered ancillary weapons, sharpened and used in close quarters at the Battle of Stalingrad.
Constructed from EVA foam around an 8 mm solid fibreglass rod, this Folding Shovel is finished with a durable layer of latex to prevent shredding and to give it a realistic, smooth surface. The 39 cm handle is carved and hand painted to look like real wood grain, while the 31 cm long head has a nice army-green metal finish with worn edges.
The shovel’s head is not actually foldable, but it includes fine details to give the impression that it can be! It is also reinforced to keep the head of the shovel from breaking, despite heavy use. Use this improvised axe against raiders, zombies, and radioactive rodents--while maintaining an air of ‘practicalism’ thanks to its multifunctional nature.
A Tool for Military Strategy
Entrenching tools were used in ancient times by Roman legionnaires to dig ditches around their camps
The entrenching tool was designed to fold easily for transport, and serve as both a shovel and a pick
Entrenching tools were also considered a weapon and were often sharpened by soldiers in WWI and WWII
When you’re surrounded by enemies in the middle of nowhere, you realize that all that iron you pumped was not such a waste of time. Sometimes, it just doesn’t help to be the smartest or the fastest when there’re just so many zombies that try to eat your brains, and heaven knows I don’t have too much of that. Sometimes, all it takes is raw strength… And a huge sledgehammer to crush all those trying to get to you. Jack and I (that’s the pet name I give my hammer), we ain’t afraid of nothin’!
Another great iconic piece from the Zombicalypse collection, this weapon is an amazingly accurate reproduction of a large sledgehammer. Its massive head has a very realistic metallic finish.

Epic Armoury’s Mallet is a realistic latex hammer designed to serve as a weapon or prop in the hands of almost any character. Sculpted and handpainted to look like a real woodgrain mallet, this latex weapon is 40 cm long with a 19 cm long head and a 10 x 10 cm face.

Before you pop down to the Winchester for a cold one and wait for this to all blow over, you might have to crack a few skulls. Maybe get out the duct tape and strap a knife to the end of this one?
The Toolbox Classic
Epic Armoury’s Claw Hammer is a 55 cm foam imitation of an everyday workshop hammer, typically used for driving or pulling nails from wood. Hammers like this have been used since even before the 1600s--specifically seen in an etching from 1514--so it’s perfect for fantasy and modern post-apocalyptic LARPs alike.
Made from foam around an 8 mm solid fibreglass rod and coated in durable latex, this Claw Hammer is safe for your next game or children’s theater production. It is designed to provide only light force to your neighborhood friendly zombie, unlike its metal and wood counterpart.
The Claw Hammer has a 48.5 cm grip, hand painted to look like real wood grain, and a 19 cm head that curves into a V-shaped claw. The head is 5 cm across and is also hand painted with a metal-like finish. While it is great as a carpenter’s prop, we also feel this product works as a great impromptu weapon against radioactive beasts and raiders! It’s always handy to have something like that lying around.
