What are True Larp Swords Like?
Okay, so I’ve never LARPed before. But I’ve seen Role Models. And I’ve played my fair share of W.o.W. and watched all three extended editions of Lord of the Rings…in a row! That has to give me some street cred.
So all of the LARP swords I’ve found online are made of foam. I guess that makes sense. It’s a little unsafe to be smacking each other with sharpened steel. And I’m sure foam still leaves bruises.
Here are some of my favorites:
This one looks molten! Like it was forged deep in a volcano by some crazy goblin.
If I LARPed as a Swashbuckler, this would definitely be my weapon of choice. A pirate hat on my head and this bad sword strapped to my belt—let’s go!
Maybe this beast is more your style. There are a few different LARP swords like this with a fat grip and a fancy hilt, but something about this one made it stand out. I think it’s because it feels like a gladiator’s weapon.
Zelda anyone? This is a masterpiece! The detail that went into this piece is incredible.
Those are my favorite LARP swords that I found during my hunt on the interwebs. Let me know what you think in the comments below, and link to some of your favorites!
