Taiaha

Primary Material: Tropical Hardwood These are deceptively sophisticated weapons developed in Neolithic societies which lacked access to bronze or iron for making weapons. A kind of a stone-age halberd, this is long, narrow club from 3 1/2 to 5' long, is made of dense hardwood, with a spear or oar shape overall, usually with a blade shaped end, sometimes incorporating a piece of hard stone. The tropical hardwoods which they are made of are much stronger and denser than ordinary wood. In combat, taiaha are generally used with two hands, to be employed defensively as well as offensively, and to attack from both sides. Some had obsidian or other stones incorporated. Many similar weapons were found around the world, such as the so called "gun stock" war clubs used by Iroquois and other North American indigenous tribes. These weapons very effective historically. Use: Like a staff.
