Someone's War pic posted on the Dag forum. Seems at Rag it was classified as a blue and he says it works kinda like a long chained flail without the chain.

Did it say how the joint was connected? I'm curious on finding a way to get that to work. We have attempted scythes and pick axes and have had no luck whats so ever.

No but other posters were talking about how did it pass with such thin haft padding. And another said it would break as curved/bent weapons had a short life in our sport.

That hafting doesn't look like much...then again, it is a pic, its something you'd just have to feel getting hit with.

We've tried both bending PVC and gluing the heck out of a joint piece, neither lasted longer than a practice. i'm surprised it passed at rag with how obnoxiously strict they are.

However, if it works and stands, that would be amazing.

I'm still skeptical of its effectiveness as a blue weapon, maybe if it was a double sided pick axe, but if you went for that cute over the shield shot this weapon is obviously made for, you don't have the flexibility of a flail's rope to get your weapon back to you should it become hooked on lets say... Taco's shield Twisted Evil

If becomes hooked on Taco's shield, it becomes a tug of war. Either you yank the shield out and away for a friend to make a strike on him, or he yanks your weapon out of your hand, or the damn thing breaks.

Yeah the tug-o-war possibility leaves me skeptical, but it looks like a interesting weapon. I am skeptical it actually passed at Rag though O___O the pommel looks tiny at the tip. Maybe we'll have to build this and test it out Very Happy only double sided pickaxe? Curve some PVC and try to find a way to hook it together.

Sorry to necro,

A fella over at our boards asked about a weapon of similar design and the consensus was, besides the fact that it would break really easily at the joint, the way the weapon was to be used was to hit with the end of that projection, thus making it a stabby / class 3 / green weapon - not with the side/blade of the pick, so therefore not a swung class 1 / blue weapon. All the vets concluded that a stab weapon must only ever be thrust and never swung else it becomes akin to a punching weapon due to the forces involved.
