Let me be blunt.
« on: February 14, 2016, 08:03:46 PM »
So I made a little... Warhammer.
1/2 Inch steel pipe, 18" long.
1"-1" 1/2" T section.
2, 1" Plugs.
1, 1/2" Cap.
I need to wrap the handle... Maybe coat it in paint to help protect it. Other than that, simple is as simple does.

    That. Is Awesome! Put some sand or something in the head and wrap the handle in some leather and it'll be perfect.

    I like it.

    Smear a metric butt load of red loctite on the end plugs making up the head or paint it it fire engine red.

    Kind of like a modern rendition of a WWI trench bat. Nice.

    Its probably heavy enough as it stands.   :hmm   I say keep it simple and utilitarian - friction tape on the haft and call it done.  :cool

    Wrap it in the hide of your slain enemies, that should give some grip.

    I would guess its heavy enough, with any one handed weapon you want speed as well as heft, even in a war-hammer.

    Wrap that handle in some leather and give it a wrist loop and it will be amazing!

    No... But... That's kind of a stupid question... "Can the Warhammer Kill?"  LOL... Was there doubt?
