Improvised Weapon Proficiency
Dark Moon’s White Pipe Sap is a 40 cm latex pipe, handpainted to look like steel with a worn, white finish. This improvised short weapon goes beyond a simple metal pipe, with intricately sculpted details to give it a realistic appearance. Fine sculpted tread embellishes each end of the bar and a 7 cm external coupling is fitted to the top like a small mace head. Comfortable 12 cm long suede leather is wrapped around the bottom, providing a secure grip when the gore is too thick.
Post-apocalyptic plumbers looking for piping material are advised that this item may be better for fighting than crafting. The White Pipe Sap 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.
