Ranger Sword - Vanguard
“Geoff crouched and waited together with a few other men. They’d been sent here to scout on the tax collector they knew would pass through the forest. He could feel his nerves flaring, like an angry cat arching its back and hissing, and calmed himself down by touching the smooth leather of his sword. It’d served his family well, and the groves carved by their hands were as familiar to him as his own hands and never failed to calm him down. And just in time. Here came the tax collector’s carriage.”
Epic Armoury's Ranger Sword is part of the Vanguard line, and it takes its design cues from the knightly (or arming) swords of the Late Middle Ages in Europe. It has a curved crossguard to increase the ability to catch an opponent's weapon and potentially disarm them. The hilt is made from polyurethane and has a high degree of detailing, as it is sculpted to resemble a leather wrapper around the grip, with a slight amount of gold detailing to make it stand out visually. The hilt guarantees a great grip for the wielder. The blade is made from closed-cell polyurethane foam and coloured to look as lifelike as possible. Unlike most LARP weapons, the Vanguard line requires virtually no maintenance beyond checking for wear and tear in the form of cuts or breaks.
