Wield a sword that suits your battle hardened heart. The Notched Japanese LARP Katana brings brutal, war forged elegance to the battlefield and will look deadly in the hands of a warrior such as you. Notching along its long blade gives it a wicked look that suits veteran warriors or inspires newcomers to the field of battle.

Ateliers Nemesis Athena LARP Construction:

This Japanese LARP sword is part of the Athena line from Ateliers Nemesis. Thermoforming fuses the closed cell foam of the blade together, making this Eastern inspired LARP weapon ultra safe and shred-resistant.

This sturdy foam blade surrounds a strong fiberglass core which is in turn reinforced with a high weave polyester similar to Kevlar for heightened safety. This means the LARP sword is both very safe and strong enough to parry blows.

A unique weighting system then gives this LARP sword a point of balance for natural maneuverability. You will feel just like you are wielding the real thing, simply made safe for LARP. Finally, a latex-free waterproof coating protects the LARP weapon, enhancing its durability.

Weapon Details:

True to its inspiration, the Japanese LARP katana has a single-edged blade with a subtle curve and a fuller near the spine. It ends in a tapered point. The notching on the blade gives it that battle scarred look and makes sure everyone knows you as a warrior that is not to be messed with. A subtle darker wash adds to the weathered look of the steel colored blade.

Next, the tsuba, or guard, has a traditional oval shape with careful details throughout and an antiqued gold coloration. Then, the handle looks just like a real Japanese sword with black wrapping around red faux ray skin. The kashira, or pommel cap, as well as the menuki (blade ornament underneath the handle wrapping) are in a matching antique gold.

Whether you are channeling a skilled samurai or a journey-worn ronin at your next feudal-inspired LARP event, the Notched Japanese LARP Katana makes a worthy companion.

Bring this Japanese LARP sword with you wherever battle calls. Carry it in the matching Saber Blade LARP Sword Scabbard (AN-0040), specifically designed to carry this Athena LARP blade shape. Then be sure to have the Notched Japanese LARP Tanto (AN-0034) as a companion off-hand LARP weapon for short range combat.
