You just hope that your training will continue to serve you well. At the very least, you have confidence in the sharpness of your weapon.
This bestselling Ready For Battle Roman Sword is inspired by the sword that conquered the Roman Empire: the classical gladius. Used by legionaries and anybody else who could get their hands on them, the sword has a ridged blade ending in a serrated ricasso. It has a small crossguard protecting its split-leather handle and matching round pommel.
As a Ready-For-Battle weapon, this sword is moderately styled ensuring that it can be used in most settings. Use it alone or combine it with an Epic Armoury Roman Shield for that disciplined legionary look.

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.
