Korax LARP Short Sword
(About): Spectacular Fantasy Design United with Modern Safety and Materials
Legendary German LARP suppliers Mytholon have forged a blood-brotherhood with specialist LARP sword maker Hammerkunst (‘The Art of the Hammer’) – the bards tell us that they even had to wash down the boardroom afterwards. Together, they are creating a new generation of cutting-edge live roleplay weapons that can be useful safely in physical roleplay and staged combat. The Korax LARP Short Sword is one of their line: chock-full of historical references and fantasy flair that will bring an extra layer of immersion to your ranger or warrior outfit.
A Stalwart Blade to Defend the Realms of Men
The Korax LARP Short Sword’s blade is Hammerkunst’s short-sword type blade: it is 26 ½ inches in length, an excellent style for close-quarters fighting. It has subtly tapering sides and a short point: this mirrors the Viking Age swords of the Early Medieval period, classified as Oakeshott Type X. This configuration of sword was highly robust, and is the ideal type for a LARP combat weapon. The blade features an eyecatching compound fuller, and is finished in a battleworn polished-steel color.
The hilt is a stunning masterwork in fantasy design. It is cast so as to have the appearance of pitted wrought iron, forged by a Dwarven master smith. The cross-guard features wickedly pointed twin quillons and a pierced quillon block. The grip is designed to look like hardwood, and the pierced pommel completes this gorgeous weapon. It’d look fantastic being drawn out from within our medieval-inspired fantasy cloaks – no ranger is complete without one!
The Art of the LARP Smith
Hammerkunst have worked with engineers and academics to build the perfect LARP sword design. The Korax LARP Short Sword is made with a solid glass fiber core and resilient cast polyurethane foam – it is completely latex-free, and so is much easier to maintain and care for. It is of medium hardness, and so should be used carefully against unarmored opponents. Each sword is hand-painted, so features minute attention to detail. Overall, this sword looks spectacular at any distance, and is the ideal side-arm for your warrior or ranger LARP impression.
