    Try a Halligan entry tool.
    Piercing? Yep.... Prying? Yep.... Bashing? Oh Yeah!
    I use one in the FD. Taking down a door or going through a wall is short work.
    Back mounted scabbard maybe?

    But Halligan tools are HEAVY. And EXPENSIVE. I don't need one that badly!

    It arrived today! Definitely going to have fun with this one!

    Just a quick pic for now. I'll be bringing the pick to a slightly finer point. The verdict is still out on whether or not I'll mod the face of it, as the hammer face is already small (about 1" square)

    I carved them from thick branches. I've made others from root balls. The one with a antler tine spike is cherry and the other is oak.

    What I did in this case was square off the material, shape the ball, then move down the handle. It takes about a month.

    Depends on how big a ball you want on the club and also the shape of the cross section of the branch. It's common to find one with just the right form for a nice sized ball and a raised area behind it for that part of the handle.

    How do you seal it to keep it from getting brittle with age?

    Well I have a new friend. This is the “Graymatter tomahawk” made by Dan Stanchfield (Tracker Dan), he sent it to me to last week to try it out.


    This thing is all business .

    That looks a lot like the early Sayoc influenced tomahawks.
    Lean, fast and mean.

    “Graymatter tomahawk” Had to read that twice before it sank in. Looks like a serious contender to the "bad guys"
    You be safe down there Brother......Randy

    I dont have any war clubs, But I've had these since I was 12. I had begun training with them and was about a month in when we had to move to the west coast.

    I guess this counts as a club. The only part that would cause damage is the motor....
