This latex Claw Hammer is a 55 cm foam imitation of an everyday workshop hammer, typically used for driving or pulling nails from wood. Hammers like this have been used since even before the 1600s--specifically seen in an etching from 1514--so it’s perfect for fantasy and modern post-apocalyptic LARPs alike.
Made from foam around an 8 mm solid fibreglass rod and coated in durable latex, this Claw Hammer is safe for your next game or children’s theater production. It is designed to provide only light force to your neighborhood friendly zombie, unlike its metal and wood counterpart.
The Claw Hammer has a 48.5 cm grip, hand painted to look like real wood grain, and a 19 cm head that curves into a V-shaped claw. The head is 5 cm across and is also hand painted with a metal-like finish.
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.
