Panabas - 140 cm
“As I hoped, my brother carried his panabas when returning from his chores. The mere sight made our unwelcome guests hesitate. They naturally recognised the blade as a weapon, but even more so as a symbol of power. By insulting us, their further travels would be woeful with significant chances of a sudden end. Their strategy suddenly changed. Now they apologised and attempted to appeal to our honour. We decided to remain magnanimous. That changed their lives for the better.”
Epic Armoury’s Panabas is a forward-curved blade inspired by the southern Philippines. This version is sculpted to imitate a long, axe-like metal blade, heavily notched from intense labour or warfare, attached to a textured wooden and adorned with leather bindings. However, as it comprises a solid fibreglass rod core embedded in latex covered ethylene-vinyl acetate copolymer (EVA) foam, it is safe for live-action role-playing combat.
Classic, 12 mm Solid Fibreglass Rod
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.
