Epic Armoury’s yellow Spiked Monkey Wrench is a 50 cm tool designed to imitate an adjustable wrench typically found in any old workshop, with a nail stuck in the wrenche's mandibles. Made with materials that are safe for your next live action roleplay (LARP) game, keep this Monkey Wrench at your side when fighting in the post-apocalypse. After all, just about anything can be used as a weapon against the walking dead! This wrench is a great option thanks to its convenient size and shape.
The Spiked Monkey Wrench has a 24 cm grip, painted green with rust spots, and a 25 cm head with a metal-like finish. It is sculpted from EVA foam around a 6 mm solid fibreglass rod core, and is coated with a strong layer of flexible latex to prevent it from shredding--and to give it a smooth, glossy surface! The wrench’s jaw is not actually adjustable, but it includes fine details to give the impression that it is, reinforced to keep the head of the wrench intact despite heavy use, with an added nail stuck between the grip. Since it might be the only thing standing between you and your enemy, we figured you’d want this wrench to be a reliable and effective ally.
A Mechanic’s Tool
- This LARP weapon actually resembles a pipe wrench, a common mix-up made by non-tradespeople

- 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.
