Polehammer head

The medieval polehammer, also known as a pollaxe, was a versatile weapon that emerged in the late 14th century and remained in use throughout the Renaissance period.

It was was primarily used by knights, men-at-arms, and other heavily armored warriors. Its effectiveness against plate armor made it a popular choice on the battlefield.

The hammer side of the head could be used to deliver blunt force, capable of stunning or disorienting an opponent even if it didn't penetrate the armor. Additionally, the spike or thrusting point could be used for grappling and dismounting riders.

Our Polehammer head is mounted on a wooden pole with an ideal size of 30-32 mm or 16 mm fiberglass core. It is therefore possible to use the weapon with both a wooden pole and a full foam pole with a fiberglass core.

Before mounting the head, it is necessary to machine the wood and narrow it (see picture).

The Polehammer head can be ordered separately in steel, graphite, and brass color. We also produce the complete weapon in the length of 2 meters with a stained octagonal wooden pole.

But only for the Czech customers. We only send Polehammer heads abroad.

The spike is very flexible for greater safety.

The entire surface of the portion of the shaft that is inserted into the socket has to be coated in a good quality glue, for instance Pattex ONE FOR ALL.

The tip of the fiberglass core or wooden shaft has to be thoroughly rounded to prevent any edges from weakening and potentially cutting the foam from inside.

Care Instructions - LARP weapons

Avoid cutting the weapons with sharp objects, likewise do not hit hard or rough objects, like rocks, benches or trees. Try to avoid substantial blows to edges of armor, especially things like swordbreakers. Also, pay attention to the potential sharp edges of your own gauntlets, as some can cut into cross guards or other parts of the hilt when fencing. Make sure to avoid long term compression of the eapons, especially during storage. Our cross guards are made of hard rubber and do not mind blows in combat, they bend slightly but return immediately. The cross guards however can get deformed with extreme bending over longer periods, when they are for example put under luggage in the trunk of a car or in a chest.

If you tear the foam of the weapon, you can repair it with a high-quality flexible superglue. We personally recommend Loctite Super Attak Power Flex gel, which fills up and strengthens the crack in about 10 minutes. The color of the weapon can be restored or changed with paints made for plastics. A broken core unfortunately cannot be repaired. FAQ

Care Instructions - LARP blasters

The locks on the blasters are not connected to the mechanism itself and they don’t move when shooting. They are solid steel, much like most of the barrels, so while accidentally shooting someone will be harmless, hitting them with the blaster definitely won’t be. Therefore be careful when brandishing it in crowded situations.

While the blasters are relatively hardy, don’t expose them to needless stress, like dropping them on the ground or using them to stabilize a table. Also don’t use them to parry blows. The lock might tear out, if there’s unreasonable leverage on it and it’s very likely to damage any larp weapon it gets hit with.

The most important part of the maintenance of our blasters is keeping them well oiled and lubricated. This prevents rust and ensures that the mechanism operates smoothly. You can use any kind of anti-corrosive technical oil, the seal in the piston is leather, which doesn’t degrade in oil, like rubber does. I personally use Silkal, which is silicone based. To oil the lock, simply spray it and use a rag to wipe excess oil. You can also wax the lock to make it more rust resistant, but I find that oil works sufficiently well. If you get any rust spots, you should be able to easily clean them with an abrasive sponge. FAQ

Care Instructions - Leather products

Our holsters, munition satchels and sword-belts are made from high quality vegetable tanned leather and the staining and subsequent oiling is done with natural agents, and as such they necessarily require some maintenance. Let’s elaborate intelligibly:

Best method of caring is to actively use the products. The more you use them, the better. This is especially applicable to belts because they are worn in the most “personal” manner.

If your product spends some time (namely circa month and more) stored somewhere, please make sure you use leather conditioner (readily available in your local shoe or DIY stores) before taking the product on an event again, because after that
long while of idleness, the material may be prone to undesirable cracks. The conditioner usually comes with a handy manual, but putting a small amount of it on a cotton cloth and then rubbing the whole product should do the trick.

Other instance in which some level of care is greatly advised is if your product gets wet somehow – during rainstorm, while crossing wild rivers and/or streams, after falling overboard, whilst fighting some terribly drooling monster or celebrating something by ingesting liquids of various origin after a day well-spent – we advise to let the product dry naturally and then, once again, thoroughly rub it with an above-mentioned leather conditioner.

Finally, please do note that leather of all kinds tends to get ever so slightly darker with time and both from usage and maintenance. FAQ

How long the production takes depends on how busy we currently are. We try to make and send the weapons as quickly as possible, but we cannot guarantee the precise completion of your order. We are currently averaging 20-40 days between order and shipping.
