“I Fight with Plumbing Supplies”
Dark Moon’s Steel Pipe is a 60 cm latex pipe, handpainted to look like real, tarnished dark steel. This improvised weapon goes beyond a simple metal pipe, with sculpted details so intricate that it could be mistaken for the real thing. Each end of the straight bar features fine sculpted tread, with a 9 cm external coupling fitted to the top like a mace head. A 13 cm long suede leather grip has been added to the bottom, giving it a little extra comfort when wielded against your enemies.
Future plumbers looking for piping material are advised that this item may be better for slaying mutant rodents in the post-apocalypse than running radioactive water to a sink. The Steel Pipe is not hollow, but is constructed from EVA foam around a solid fibreglass rod and a strong kevlar core tip. Safety is important and incorporated in this design--because we don’t actually want you to hurt your friends dressed up as amazing zombies! It is finished with a durable layer of latex to prevent shredding and to give it a realistic, smooth surface.

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.
