BEFORE YOU CAN SAY KNIFE…

This here is a fighting knife. It might look bruised and worn out, but don’t let that fool you! Epic Armoury’s Battleworn Trench Knife is a latex-hybrid single-edged knife with an intricate knuckleduster handle. In length it resembles a small sword richly detailed with traces of wear like rust and notches.  The elaborate crossguard curves around the hand, providing a comfortable and protective grip for each individual finger, but also good for close quarter fighting where a punch might be just as effective as a slash. The 11 cm handle is casted and painted to look like real wood with metal embellishments.

Whether you are a ruffian, a marred soldier or a post apocalyptic warrior, this Battleworn Trench Knife is our highest quality gear due to its impressive durability and detail. The blade is made from closed cell foam around a fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, while the handle is a polyurethane foam cast that allows for greater detail and no maintenance. Whenever you are going for a worn and distressed look for your LARP character, this hybrid model sword will make you confident in the safety and appeal of your weapon on the battlefield.
