hi all i spent the summer looking through shows to see if i could find one for combat use sadly i did not find any. i have a specific type in mind. i only want european makers as shipping will be high. its paramount it will be made safe for use and would be better if i can discuss what i want with the maker. if i can find ones for sale even better. im looking for one with an axe face and a hammer face with a decent rounded spike and butt spike.
so can anyone help me?

Contact Tom at Combatant's Keep (http://www.combatantskeep.com/) he had an awesome poleax at last Friday's joust event in Wisconsin that he fought with.

He hand makes all of them personally and they completely rock!

There are plenty of European makers too.

Look at the lot of british makers. There is at least one I buy my staff arms from in Germany. And Eastern Europe has some makers too.

Well, my trusted smith is Manfred Pany: http://www.manfred-pany.de/ He does pices to your order

Dressed to Kill from the UK does them: http://www.dtok.fsnet.co.uk/ (No experience myself, but I heard good from other people)

Arma Bohemia dictributes the work from different smiths: http://www.armabohemia.cz/index.htm

I am sure there are more. Ben van Koert once talked about some dutch makers, maybe you can look up his threads.

There are plenty more, that I donīt have all the website and names for.

Hi. I ordered a pollaxe from www.lightswords.cz . This guy does not have any catalogue-pieces, but produces only custom orders. I havenīt seen py pollaxe right now, but his other weapons look awesome and he is really cheap. The pollaxe with an axeblade at the front, a hammerhead at the backside an a rounded spike on top, everything rounded for free-fighting, costs ca. 130,- Euros. He even managed to build it with a max. weight of 2,0 kg at a lenght of ca. 1,80m, what allows me to use this nice piece of weaponry in several free-fight tournaments.
Just check his homepage...
