Security

Compliance with certification standards of LARP

Our LARP and Cosplay recreational combat weapons have been carefully designed for safety and durability. Over 15 years of experience in the industry has made it possible for the vast majority of our products to comply with certification standards around the world.

Your favorite LARP organization refuses our weapons? We can adapt certain materials and techniques to meet the certification standards required by your LARP. Whether you are a player or an evaluator, send us the contact details of your organization or ask them to contact us directly, we will be happy to discuss the matter with them and with the possibility of sending an example of our products for approval.

Fair play!

As manufacturers we are responsible for the safety of our products. However, users’ behavior plays an integral role in how the game is played. The user has the responsibility to respect the physical integrity of his fellow players :

✓ Inspect your weapon before each battle ;
✓ Avoid hits to the face or other vulnerable parts of the body;
✓ Act out the strength without actually enforcing it;
✓ Be mindful of the safety of others AT ALL TIMES.

Soft and resistant materials

Our weapons are renowned for their soft edges, which results in far superior comfort than the competitors. The internal structure is made of a stretched fiberglass rod, flexible enough to partially absorb shocks, while rigid enough to not affect the handling. To reduce the risk of injury when thrusting, spikes are reinforced with a soft complex-weave polyester fabric. The blade is coated with LATEX-FREE varnish.

SUPERIOR DURABILITY

High quality materials

In the continual pursuit to meet the demanding criteria of recreational combat, we have developed high quality standards for our selection of materials.
✓ Our closed cell cross-linked EVA copolymer memory foams, called Evazote, are 100% waterproof, have a comfortable density and benefit from a high threshold for breaking.

✓ Our fiberglass rods manufactured by Pultrusion are #1 grade, the highest quality on the market

✓ To ensure a fusion between the foam layers and solid adhesion around the structure we use a high quality Neoprene contact adhesive.

✓ Our natural rubber covering the foam, contains a sulfur additive which makes it possible to triple the molecular bonds during coagulation. This provides greater resistance to tearing and improved waterproofing.

✓ Our varnish is 100% LATEX FREE, flexible and waterproof. It also allows us to refresh the blades over time without lamination.

✓ Our molded sleeves, guards and knobs are made of high quality polyurethane rubber which is waterproof and tear resistant.

✓ Our wooden handles are made of carefully selected hardwood reinforced with a steel tube in the center and covered with real leather or a protective varnish.

MADE IN CANADA

The entire production is hand-made in Quebec

Our workshop is located in the province of Quebec, Canada, in a region called Mauricie, in a quaint little village called St-Élie-de-Caxton. The work space spans 5 000 square feet and houses each of the manufacturing stages, executed by our experienced and passionate team. Most of the finishing details are done by hand, and for certain procedures are still considered handcrafted, which grants our production team great adaptability to meet our customers needs.

Innovative techniques in research and development

Our manufacturing techniques have evolved over time to meet demand, remain competitive and ensure that production remains in Canada. We have developed original high-quality materials, as well as a process to thermoform our blades, called the ATHENA process. These innovative ideas and applications have allowed our products to meet industry standards while improving their quality and allowing our team to become more productive. Incorporating the industry’s technological advancements into our process, using the ATHENA press and the 3D printer, improves our tools that inspire our creativity.
