Merlin's Armoury - Staff Weapons
Staff weapon sales and commissions were very rare, part due to cost, part due to practicality. Although you have longer reach most of these are slow and cumbersome, more so as wider and far more flexible due to the rigidity limitations of the glass reinforced plastic rods/tubes.
The pugil sticks
(Think cotton bud double mace), axe end staffs and haliberds
seen in the photo were commission sets from sketch designs of 5 ordered by long term client groups. The naginata
spear was an early staff weapon attempt.
As mentioned the original photos have been lost leaving only multi copied, scanned and Photoshop cleaned up colour copies where lots of paper damage marks had to be airbrushed leaving poor quality images.
