Epic Armoury products are handmade and hand painted in order to create the quality LARP weapons, costumes and props that is the Epic Armoury standard. However, because of their handmade nature, these items can be produced with cosmetic faults. On the occasion where one of our RFB axes, hammers, and maces arrive with the wrong coloured paint or an imperfect shape, we offer them at a discounted price instead of throwing them away. No wasting materials material--and you get a great deal!
About Buckler Shields
Epic Armoury's LARP Buckler collection includes a range of both historical and fantasy inspired shields. These small shields come in both the round punch-shield variety, and a small shield that straps onto the arm. They are made from hard EVA foam and finished with a strong latex coating--or leather, as is the case of the Elven Buckler. They are secured to your arm using two leather straps, or held using a foam and leather punch grip.
Ordering a 2nd Quality Weapon
When you order a 2nd Buckler, you will receive a random buckler with an aesthetic imperfection. You may not choose the specific style, as we cannot guarantee which will be available. We DO guarantee that--whatever the design--the product is safe to use, despite its cosmetic faults.
- Strong latex coating on hard EVA foam, which does not flex in combat
- Made from durable closed cell foam that does not shred
- Handle is made of EVA foam and soft leather for a firm grip
- High safety, approved by the top organizations
All latex-coated weapons and shields 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.
