As your grandaddy once preached, give a fool a pike and he’ll defeat a trained, but foolish horseman. Give a trained fool a pike, and you’ve just defeated an army.
With this in mind, you decided to become a master of the Pike Pole. No one on horseback or any weapon of short stature dare run you down for fear of their lives. Your grandaddy would be proud.
Epic Armoury’s Pike Pole is a 90cm spear designed for infantry, inspired by both the glaive and pike. It features a long bladed spearhead with a clawed spike, sculpted and hand painted to look like real metal. The head is actually made of soft foam, reinforced with a harder foam core. It attaches to the hand painted shaft, textured to look like dark wood. The grip is shorter to allow for better close combat.
Made from durable closed cell foam around a solid 10 mm fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, your new LARP spear will provide the safety and appeal you want when crafting your Defiant kit.
- A true pike would feature a spearhead without a blade or claw
- Pikes and bladed spears often competed in length to outmatch opponents
- Was not historically great in close combat, but this version has been shortened to be more wieldy on the battlefield
