The trick is never to stay in one place for too long. Inevitably the undead will sniff you out of your hiding hole, and you’ll find yourself cornered by an endless sea of flesh-hungry abominations. Unfortunately, while you’re on the move, your last encounter emptied the last of your bullets. With an empty gun you’re defenseless.
You take refuge in an abandoned police 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 Baton. Giving it a few test swings, you find that you like the balance. It will serve your needs for now.
Epic Armoury’s Baton is a modern club based on one of the oldest weapons known to man--and we guarantee that it will also be a favourite in apocalyptic times. The Baton is 56 cm long with a 16 cm oval-shaped handle carved with a spiral pattern for extra grip. The Baton’s pommel and crossguard are frustum-shaped, also designed to keep your grip firm on the weapon. The club itself is 40 cm long, and 2.5 cm wide at the base. The club widens to a diameter of 2.5 cm near the tip, balancing the baton for more powerful strikes.
Made from durable closed cell foam around a solid fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, you can feel confident that your LARP weapon will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your post-apocalyptic kit.

All latex-coated weapons need 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. It maintains the latex-coat’s flexibility and prevents it from drying out, keeping the product wear and tear resistant.
Store your latex weapons 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 weapons in a cool, dry environment.
