“Torvald rose from his throne and drew his sword. “By Odin! I am Jarl here, and I will not be disrespected in my hall! Erik, I name you a coward! I name you liar and filth! Draw your weapon, and we shall do the holmgang!” Erik turned as pale as the newly fallen snow, and his voice shook. “I meant no disrespect, my Jarl!” This only incensed Torvald more, and his anger was now like a beast of its own, a bull charging down a narrow lane towards a row of pottery, smashing all in its way. “If you do not meet me outside, my blade will taste your blood regardless!”
Epic Armoury's Jarl Sword is part of the Vanguard line, and it is inspired by the swords of the Jarls and kings of the Viking Age of Scandinavia with its small grip and golden rune details. The hilt is made from polyurethane and has a high degree of detailing, as it is sculpted to resemble patterned leather. This guarantees both comfort and a great grip for the wielder. The blade is made from closed-cell polyurethane foam and coloured to look as life-like as possible. Unlike most LARP weapons, the Vanguard line requires virtually no maintenance beyond checking for wear and tear in the form of cuts or breaks.
