Spatha Short Sword by Epic Armoury

Expected release date is Jun 1st 2017

The Hybrid Spatha Short Sword inspired from the Roman Gladius. This simple double edged latex blade has a double fuller. The polyurethane foam hilt is far more rich in detail and provides a firm grip on the weapon. This sword was built to withstand the tests of time. 

Epic Armoury’s Spatha is a medium latex-hybrid sword inspired by the Roman gladius. The sword is 60 cm long and has a double-edged blade with a double fuller. The hilt, called a capulus features an intricate design indicative of an officer or dignitary. The knobbed grip is designed to provide a firm, ergonomic hold and ends with a large, spherical pommel.

Whether you are a Roman officer or a gladiator in the arena, this Spatha is one of our highest quality products 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. This hybrid model sword will give you confidence in the safety and appeal of your weapon on the battlefield.

HISTORY

  • Used as the primary sword of Ancient Roman foot soldiers
  • The design was inspired by swords used by people living in Hispania
  • Was often paired with a shield
Blade has a strong latex coating with a round fibreglass core Strong Kevlar core tip protection Blade is made from durable closed cell foam that does not shred Handle is a polyurethane foam cast, giving it more detail with no maintenance! Handle is very durable, will last longer than a latex version, and is less slippery than a silicone treated alternative High safety, approved by the top organizations This hybrid weapon’s handle does not require any special maintenance, while the blade has a latex coating which needs a certain degree of maintenance. For this we recommend using maintenance silicone, which can be purchased separately in the LARP Accessories section. Epic Armoury Maintenance Silicone is an easy, spray-on application, 100% pure and acid-free making it safe to apply. We recommend using Maintenance Silicone on a regular basis, taking care not to apply the spray to the handle by first wrapping it in plastic-wrap. It maintains the latex-coat’s flexibility and prevents it from drying out, keeping the product wear and tear resistant. Store your weapon flat or on its pommel--NEVER on its tip. Use a simple sheet or towel lining to prevent it from touching a plastic or rubber surface to prevent your weapon from adhering to other products. Keep your weapon in a cool, dry environment.
