5 Reviews
Product Code: Staff.Octagon.1.25x84
This series of staves are made with 2 layers of impact grade hickory laminated together to form a strong, straight and defect free staff. This is the best wood possible for martial arts use. The hickory is strong, yet it is flexible to not be brittle when struck against other equipment. We hand oil at least 2 coats of a boiled linseed/mineral spirits mixture.

This series of staves are made with 2 layers of impact grade hickory laminated together to 1-1/8" (28.5mm) diameter..

The Short Staff is one of the most studied and popular ofall polearms. It is a formidable weapon of approximately six to nine feet inlength, and was often described as the basis for all other types of polearms,such as the halberd and pollaxe. This weapon is known by several differentnames, owing to its use across a large time period throughout many Europeanmartial arts traditions. It has been variously called the staff, pole, shortstaff, quarterstaff, half-staff, and balk-staff. The moderate length of thisweapon allows its wielder to safely fight opponents at a long distance, whilealso allowing versatile and agile movements that would not be possible with alonger weapon.

For use in competition against another fighter using astaff, a Short Staff of 6’-7’ seems to be preferable. Against multiple orvaried weapons, such as would be encountered in war, a Short Staff of 8’-9’would be most effective. In either length, the staff should be made from astraight, smooth, and strong hardwood. The diameter should be no more than youcan easily hold in your hand, but also not so thin that the staff would not beable to withstand heavy blows, and not so thick that maneuvering the weaponwould be difficult due to its weight. Each dimension can vary slightly from personto person, so a custom piece would be desirable for those who wish to seriouslyadvance their training. Otherwise, for new practitioners or large groups, astandard weapon which matches these general guidelines will do the job.

The hickory is light, yet strong, and the finish is perfectly smooth. Exactly what I have been looking for.

Pulled it out of it's box and immediately smacked myself... It's pretty sturdy, if I do say so myself.

Overall a really nice staff, shipped fast considering it is hand made. It's really smooth feels nice in the hands and smells nice. After having it for about a week without use there's a little split forming on one side, not sure if this is an issue considering it's still very solid but something to note.
