A leather headband with a metal Scorpion mounted on it. The leather headband is made of three sections riveted together, while the scorpion is held in place with microfibre suede lacing. The headband is held in place by lace at the back running through holes with metal eyelets making it size adjustable from 21″ upward. Leather can be black or brown while the scorpion can be silver coloured or brass effect.
Darkblade are based in Greenfield on the edge of Saddleworth Moor. On a crisp winters day looking out of the window you can almost see the goblins arriving at the Battle of the 5 armies.
We’ve been building leather stuff for Larp for over 20 years, designs guided by our many years of larping experience(fighting, dying, running away, the usual stuff)
Meet the team
Tim setup Darkblade many years ago before the Interweb knew what the Interweb was. Tim designs and builds stuff in leather and has thought of everything your character might need. He designs patterns, cuts up leather and builds stuff, answers the phone, trades at events and generally runs the company (well, it is his company).
Pete has worked at Darkblade for about a decade. Noone is quite sure how he joined the company, he probably visited and just forgot to leave. Pete deals with printing, picking, packing and posting the orders, reminds Tim to do stuff, bashes rivets, answers emails, reminds Tim to do stuff, builds stuff and takes the blame when Tim hasn’t done stuff.
Pete started live roleplaying back in the Treasure Trap days at Peckforton Castle (them were the days) and attended the final year. He then got involved in Spirit of Adventure and various other systems which used Gaffa Weapons and we wore Hessian from old potato sacks.
Derek started his modelling career at the age of 2. He initially modelled nappies and clothing and during his teenage years it is rumoured he was the Milky Bar Kid (although he has never confirmed this). In his early 20’s he strode the catwalks of Paris and Milan modelling for the high-end fashion houses, he was friends with Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, all 3 often seen partying in London. Derek recently retired and has been modelling on a part-time basis for Darkblade. Derek currently lives with his micro-pigs on a small holding. His hobbies and interests include Waterskiing, Yoga, Real Ale and he has what is considered to be a world class collection of pencils.
