Yeah! But though! But the point is that this schythe is more a element of a costume than a L.A.R.P. weapon. The fact is that the simple fact that this is a scythe makes it illegual in every L.A.P. LOL!
My bigest advice is: Dont try to make a scythe... It is evil and harsh to complete and it will never be accepted anywerw... But Use fiberglass for the skeletton of your weapon and Evozote foam for the structure. This matérial is sof and resistant. Verry good for LARP Weapons!
Uh well thanks that's not exactly the advice i was looking for but I guess that's the reason why I haven't found anything about it yet. It's sad you can't use it ... it's brilliant! Did you create it for a special character or something?
i just ordered some eva foam, some fiberglass rods and a couple things of plasti-dip. should have something ugly made up soon. :-P have you used a foam cutter or hot knife before? i'm considering getting one, and for $30 it wouldn't be too expensive.
I wield a real one and it slices the wind like a dream, but I'm a Grim Reaper if you will. If you wield like a oddly shaped staff, being careful of the blade of course and never land a hit with the blade. The weight is a problem but if you spend some time with it you'll get use to it. I did C:
Thats because the pommel and the reanforcing rings aren't paint. This is the foam colors... They should be gold. And it miss some contrast on the wooden part. And maybe the runes too need to be moore clear. But thanks! for the shaft curve i used a metal tube filled with fiber glass and the blade curve is nothig moore than a little angle in the axis of the fiber glass.
I Dont thik i will use it in a real LARP But the metal used for this one is a steel tube Filed with rubber and fiber glass. The piece is heavy but easely wielded. The two litle handles ares placed juste perfectly for my size. But i think one day i will made a better one.
