The undead have found your hiding hole, and you are nearly cornered by an endless sea of flesh-hungry abominations. You’re barely able to escape, but not without losing your gun. You’re practically defenseless.
You take refuge in an abandoned police station, looking for a new weapon. Most people have thought the same thing, because the place is picked clean. You are lucky, however, as you stumble upon an overturned desk. Beneath the mess you find an intact Tonfa--a side-handle baton. Giving it a few test swings, you find that you like the way it cuts through the air. It might be useful.
Dark Moon’s Tonfa is a modern police baton based on a traditional martial arts weapon. The Tonfa is 60 cm long with a perpendicular 20 cm handle carved with a spiral pattern for extra grip. A 5 cm wide knob at the end of the handle is also designed to keep your grip firm on the weapon. When held by the handle, the shaft acts as a splint to shield the hand and forearm. It can also be held below the handle, using the t-shaped handle as a crossguard.
Made from durable closed cell foam around a solid fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, you can feel confident that this LARP weapon will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your post-apocalyptic kit.

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.
