Dreki LARP Sword
(About): Spectacularly Detailed Latex-Free Polyurethane LARP Sword Available in Finely-Cast Gold or Steel
Early Medieval Norse cultures are a rich vein for fantasy inspiration. Ever since the Nordic revival of the 19th-century, fantastical Norse mythology and real-world Viking history have informed writers from JRR Tolkien to GRR Martin – and they can bring your fantasy roleplay to life. Epic Armoury has produced a brilliant range of Viking-inspired fantasy weaponry, king amongst which is the Dreki LARP Sword. Its noble stylings (or iron warrior fittings, depending on your choice!) will bring a depth to your roleplay outfit that’ll be the envy of every shieldmaiden and jarl in your warband.
A Drengr’s Best Friend
The Dreki LARP Sword is available in two sizes: a magnificent 40-inch arming sword, or a handsome 33 ½ inch shortsword. Both blades are configured as an Oakeshott Type X, a traditional Viking sword type which was made by Frankish smiths in the Carolingian Empire. The longsword has an additional feature: an aesthetic leather-style half-sheath, whilst the shortsword has a simple clean design.
The hilt design of the Dreki LARP Sword is a marvel of Nordic-inspired design. The cross-guard is a traditional short Norse cross. It is engraved with swirling serpents, in the ‘Urnes’ style of Viking art (named for the 11th century carvings on Urnes Stave Church, Norway). The hand-grip is a handsome simulated dark wood-grain, with a metal spacer. The pommel is a ‘five-lobed’ Late Viking style, with simulated gold/steel wiring. As well as a choice of lengths, the hilt is available in either a regal Gold finish, or in pitted Steel for a fearless drengr.
Viking Style; Modern Construction
Epic Armoury have used the most up-to-date materials and safety in the construction of the Dreki LARP Sword. It is cored with an 8/10mm fibreglass rod, and is made from cast closed-cell foam. It is latex-free, and a hard construction that will likely require your opponent to be armored (or stoutly clothed!) for use in combat – you should outfit yourselves with our functional Viking LARP armor. And trust us – it is a weapon that will beg out to be used. Give in to the berserker’s call!
