Quality. Safety. Durability. Creativity. All words synonymous with a weapon from Calimacil. Since its inception in 2004 Calimacil has consistently produced some of the finest, most reliable, most detailed swords, daggers, axes and more for the Live Action Role Play community. As passionate gamers themselves, the crew at Calimacil brought creativity and technological advancements together to construct their arsenal. Today, Calimacil produces weapons for LARP combatants across a broad range of themes including traditional medieval, fantasy, pirate, Japanese, and even Zombie!
What sets Calimacil apart is their advanced molding methods, unique foam, and high quality details. In their own words Calimacil says “Our molding process requires no assembly; the blade and handle are merged to the inner structure providing excellent solidity. The withstanding power, the quality of materials used, and the innovative design create a weapon with maximum security without compromising its appearance.” That durability and longevity are paramount when engaging in intense Live Action Role Play or Medieval Martial Arts. Hit after hit, a Calamcil weapon retains its solidity, shape, and look.
Unlike many LARP foam and latex weapons, a Calimacil weapon requires no maintenance. According to Calimacil “No coating is used that could hide a deterioration of the foam, blade or dangerous section of the armor.” That means your weapon stays looking and functioning great even after repeated use, or even sliding in and out of a sheath.
The superior durability is almost hard to fathom. “The injection molding process allows all the materials from which the weapon is made to fuse together perfectly: a composite rod, reinforced tip, and high-quality polymers merge to become one solid item” says Calimacil. Even when the blade is purposefully severed by a steel knife it retains its strength and safety. Testing under harsh weather (-30°C to +100°C) and the elements (rain, snow, sun) the weapons from Calimacil retained the usability and performance.
If you are seeking the most realistic, most durable weapons for your LARP crusade, re-enactment, or training then look no further than Calimacil. Their cache of shortswords, longswords, bastard swords, daggers, axes, spears and more are straight from the heart of gamers themselves and will have you standing victorious on your field of battle.
