With luck--and some skill--you manage to catch a rabbit in one of your snares. You think to yourself that it’s a wonder that some wolf hasn’t already caught such a fat morsel. As you sling it over your shoulder and head home, you expect your own family is going to be thrilled at the wolf’s loss.
You skin the creature outside the front step of your modest home using your Hunter Throwing Knife, saving the fur to be made into something useful. With a few more skilled flicks of your knife, your rabbit is ready for the stew.
Epic Armoury’s Throwing Knife Hunter is a curved knife designed to appear ideal for a deadly throw. This 24 cm knife has a 16 cm single-edged blade with a fuller. The 9 cm handle is handpainted and sculpted to look like wood with two small nails, framed by a brass pommel and crossguard.
The Throwing Knife Hunter complements most of Epic Armoury’s high and low-fantasy products. 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.
