This is a list of people and companies in North America that make or sell Novitas-legal latex weapons.

Custom Weapon Makers

Ateliers Nemesis
http://www.ateliers-nemesis.com/
Recommended by: Dave H./hivemind

Iron Liege
http://www.ironliege..._Smithshop.html
(Ensure that when buying from Iron Liege, you purchase the "non-latex" versions of his weapons, not the "hybrid" versions. Kingdoms of Novitas has not tested the "hybrid" versions for legality in our system yet)
Recommended by: Dave H./hivemind

Additionally, there are some KoN Players who make custom latex weapons. Contact any of the following through these forums:

Thunderstave

sammythegun

Manufactured Weapons Sellers

Knighthawk Armory
http://www.latex-weaponry.com/
Sellers of Forgotten Dreams, Ex-Caliber, and Eagle Flex latex weapons. Please note that while Calamacil latex weapons are also for sale at this site, some Calamacil weapons will not pass a KoN safety inspection. While we have not outlawed all Calamacil weapons, there is no guarantee that the one you buy will meet KoN safety standards, and each will be individually inspected before entering play. Caveat Emptor.

Strongblade
http://www.strongblade.com/
Sellers of Calamacil (Conqueror Series) and Palnatoke (Paladin Series) latex weapons. As with the note about Calamacil weapons above, some Palnatoke weapons also do not meet KoN safety standards, and each will be individually inspected before entering play

Edhellen Armory
http://www.edhellen.com/
Sellers of Forgotten Dreams and Eagle Flex latex weapons.
Recommended by: Dave H./hivemind

The LARP Store
http://www.larp-store.com/
Sellers of Forgotten Dreams and Calamacil latex weapons.

Medieval Collectibles
http://www.medievalcollectibles.com/
Sellers of Forgotten Dreams latex weapons (seems to carry the entire line).

Badger's Den
http://www.badgersden.com/Store/
Sellers of Palnatoke latex weapons (caution: some members here have experienced very long shipping and/or restock times from Badger's Den. I highly recommend you call or email them to see if an item is in stock before ordering. Caveat Emptor.)

If anyone has anything to add, just post them up here, and I'll add them above. If anyone has purchased from any of these places in the past, please feel free to post up about them, I'll add that as well.

Posted 06 November 2008 - 09:53 PM

So I've decided to leap into the business of LARP weapons sales. I'm not making anything, rather I'm going to be selling weaopns from all of the following:

Iron Liege
Ateliers Nemesis
Calamacil
Forgotten Dreams
Eagle Flex/Depeeka Exports

I'm still waiting to hear from Palnatoke. They don't seem to want to answer emails, and I don't feel like calling Denmark. :( But I'll keep working on them.

I'll be selling in person at our games and fighter practices, at the MVGC upon appointment, and through a web storefront (that's not up yet, but is coming).

I'm not going at this piecemeal. I've got $15,000 in funding available and plan to keep essentially everything from Calamacil, Eagle Flex and Forgotten Dreams in stock once I get running. I'm still working out details with Ateliers Nemesis as to what level of their stock they can give me, but I've worked out a sweet deal with Iron Liege.

Iron Liege is making custom, exclusive limited edition weapons for me, and hence - for YOU. They're being made in batches of five, and once those are gone, they'll never be duplicated exactly again. Many of them will have KoN-specific images, iconography or heraldry on them, and they'll also be available as Elven Steel, Silver, Magic and Goblin Iron at your request. The first shipment will include all of the following:

5 pieces, 40"-42" sword, generic medieval styling, basic detail----------------85.00
5 pieces, 40"-42" sword, generic medieval styling, medium detail-----------100.00
5 pieces, 40"-42" sword, generic medieval styling, heavy detail-------------115.00
5 pieces, 40"-42" sword, basket hilted, medium detail-------------------------95.00
5 pieces, 40"-42" katana, basic detail-------------------------------------------140.00

5 pieces, 52"-58" bastard/two-handed sword, medium detail----------------125.00

5 pieces, 40"-42" single bladed war axe, basic detail--------------------------85.00
5 pieces, 40"-42" single bladed war axe, heavy detail-----------------------105.00
5 pieces, 30" double bladed war axe, medium detail--------------------------95.00

5 pieces, 30" sword, generic medieval styling, medium detail----------------60.00
5 pieces, 30" sword, generic medieval styling, heavy detail------------------85.00
5 pieces, 30" wakizashi, basic detail---------------------------------------------60.00
5 pieces, 30" mace/hammer/club/some kind of blunt weapon, basic detail--65.00

Obviously, those prices are not set in stone, but they're pretty darn close to what I can charge. I would expect these weapons to be available in time for the holidays, and expect me to have a truck full at the Feb Feast. :)

I have secured another $8000 of funding, and will shortly have in stock a large pile of Eagle Flex weapons. I also have access to everything else in the Deepeeka Exports catalog. For ideas of what I'm talking about, you can browse here, until I get my storefront up: http://www.deepeeka.co.in/

As soon as I get some income coming back in from the initial expenses, I'll be placing a large order with Forgotten Dreams. Right now, their shipping/transit delays are holding me back from ordering. I just can't have thousands of dollars tied up for two or three months with no product while they get around to shipping, and the stuff worms it's way through customs.

In better news, I had a very productive phone conversation with Greg, the owner of Iron Liege. He's agreed to try his hardest to keep the weight down on the weapons he's making for me, and so will be leaving out the weighting and counterbalancing he usually puts in all his weapons. While some people and games like the more realistic weight, I've always been a firm believer that a weapon that is very stiff and very light is a very safe weapon, and so whenever I can, I'll be pushing manufacturers to build lighter and stiffer weapons. Hopefully, this is only my first step. ;)

I expect to see my first shipment of the custom Iron Liege weapons arrive in time for Holiday gift purchases, so please keep me in mind if there's someone in your life who needs a rubber sword.

Also, I think I've decided on a name for the venture. It's going to be:

Hammer & Cox Roleplaying Emporium

They're pricey, but they're worth every penny (please note that the prices above are in USD, not CAD). I've purposely tried to not order any of their weapons with the cast rubber grips, instead opting for wood or leather-wrapped wood wherever possible. I feel that they handle better and look classier.

I suppose at this point, if anyone wanted something specific and not on my list, just let me know. There's still time for a day or two to add it to the order.

That's a custom job they did for a specific client. You can always comission something similar from them but their prices are nothing to laugh at. Their stuff is the best I've seen so it's also a little more understandable.

Expect to pay somewhere between $400 and $600 for that rapier. They make beautiful stuff and they know it.

Hi Dave,

Do you have the below weapon in your stocks, or know who might sell it stateside? This vendor was listed as a Forgotten Dreams' distributor...

Fey Longsword


EDIT: Also, This Rapier looks pretty sexy, from Knighthawk Armory....has anyone had good feeling/bad dealings with them? $150 is a lot to have it be denied for our game ;)

The FD sword is part of one of the new FD collections; I don't know anyone who has them stateside yet, my distributor doesn't.

The Rapier is from ArtyFakes in the UK, it's part of a special run done just for Knighthawk Armory. I've never seen or held anything from ArtyFakes before, but I'd expect it to be quite stiff, not designed for the rigors of North American LARP (much like Forgotten Dreams). http://www.artyfakes.co.uk/
