You hold your Throwing Knife between your teeth, keeping it handy while your hands are busy picking a noble’s unguarded luggage. Leaving anything valuable without a guard is like an invitation to steal it...at least that’s been your perspective.
With a satisfying ‘click!’ the lock comes undone and you pry the chest open to reveal--oh, yes! That will do nicely. You pocket what looks to be a sizeable purse and a few interesting looking weapons, before carefully replacing the lock and sneaking out of the tent undetected.
Epic Armoury’s Throwing Knife Boot Knife is a straight throwing knife with a minimalistic brass crossguard. This 25 cm knife has a 13 cm straight double-edged blade with a fuller. The 9 cm handle is handpainted and sculpted to look like wood with two small nails.
Manufactured to complement most of Epic Armoury’s products, the Throwing Knife Boot Knife goes well with high and low-fantasy genres without breaking the overall style and feel of your costume. Made from coreless durable closed cell foam and finished with a strong latex coating, you can feel confident that this throwing knife will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your kit.
- Designed to resemble a “balanced knife,” which is preferred by most Western traditions
- Knife throwing was first used in martial arts and hunting before it became a sport
- Throwing a knife was always considered a risk in martial arts, because an unsuccessful attack would leave you without a weapon while arming your attacker
- A fuller, or the groove that runs the length of the blade, was added to weapons to lighten the blade while adding structural strength
- Strong latex coating
- Made from durable closed cell foam that does not shred
- High safety, approved by the top organizations
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.
