Your father was a great pirate who roamed the seas. He eventually became a legend amongst sailors for his incredible fighting skills with his cutlass.
You’ve inherited his RFB Basic Skull Cutlass, and you dream of adventures on the high sea that will rival the tales of your father before you. You simply need to practice...and find a ship with a crew.
Epic Armoury’s RFB Basic Skull Cutlass is a latex-hybrid single-edged sword with a basket hilt. The sword is 75 cm long and has a curved blade with a thicker tip designed to give it the chopping power necessary to dominate a bloody deck. The crossguard curves around the hand, and is decorated with a golden skull set against the silver metal. This guard protects the detailed grip cast and painted to look like real wood.
This Ready for Battle Basic Skull Cutlass is a simplified version of our RFB Skull Cutlass, perfect for children or first time LARPers. While constructed almost identically the same, this basic model has a simpler paintjob and shorter blade.
While it is meant as a beginner’s weapon, this cutlass is still constructed using our highest quality materials and is both durable and detailed. 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.

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.
