Your look out upon your troops, staring into the faces of the soldiers who may never return. Their blood is on your hands already, and it is a responsibility you hold with a heavy, but resigned heart.

“We must fight,” you shout for them all to hear. You are a mighty figure with your armour and Defender sword, a symbol to strike confidence in these soldiers. “For our homes and for our families, we will fight until we can fight no more!” With a resounding cheer, your troops ready themselves for the charge.

The battle has begun.

DETAILS

This Ready For Battle Defender is a rich looking fantasy sword of medium size. It is 75 cm long from pommel to point, with a short ricasso near the crossguard meant to protect the fingers from being sliced during certain historical sword maneuvers. The blade is superbly balanced with a 15th century Italian-inspired pommel and an ergonomic handle below a butterfly shaped crossguard. The handle is sculpted and handpainted to appear like leather, but does not require leather care.

Ready For Battle weapons are moderately styled and cost-effective weapons that are perfect for new and young players. This RFB Defender is one of our hybrid models, featuring a handle cast in polyurethane foam that allows for greater detail and no maintenance. The blade is made from closed cell foam around a fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating.

This product is handmade and hand-painted and therefore unique. As a result, when compared with similar item numbers, this product can have natural deviations in pattern, colour and shape, which are not considered defects or faults.
We produce our image material in a natural environment, where lighting and surroundings can affect colors and contrast. The displayed images may therefore appear different from the product you receive from us.

Measurements are all in cm if not stated otherwise.

This hybrid weapon’s handle does not require any special maintenance, while the blade has a latex coating which needs 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, taking care not to apply the spray to the handle by first wrapping it in plastic-wrap. It maintains the latex-coat’s flexibility and prevents it from drying out, keeping the product wear and tear resistant.

Store your weapon 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 weapon in a cool, dry environment.
