DETAILS

Epic Armouryís Trench Knife is a latex-hybrid single-edged knife with a detailed knuckleduster handle. The sword is 85 cm long and has a 65 cm curved blade inspired by weapons of the First World War. The intricate crossguard curves around the hand, providing a comfortable and protective grip for each individual finger around a 11 cm handle cast and painted to look like real wood with metal embellishments.

Whether you are a ruffian or gritty soldier, this Trench Knife is our highest quality gear due to its impressive durability and detail. The blade is made from closed cell foam around a fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, while the handle is a polyurethane foam cast that allows for greater detail and no maintenance. This hybrid model sword will make you confident in the safety and appeal of your weapon on the battlefield.

HISTORY

  • Style of handle was developed for knife fighting
  • Some of the earliest knuckleduster styled knives were issued by the US Army during WWI, including the 1917 and 1918 Mark I trench knives

  • Blade has a strong latex coating with a round fibreglass core
  • Strong Kevlar core tip protection
  • Blade is made from durable closed cell foam that does not shred
  • Handle is a polyurethane foam cast, giving it more detail with no maintenance!
  • Handle is very durable, will last longer than a latex version, and is less slippery than a silicone treated alternative
  • High safety, approved by the top organizations

This hybrid weaponís 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-coatís 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.
