A war scythe is a kind of improvised pole weapon, similar to a fauchard. The blade of the scythe is transformed so as to extend upright from the pole, thus forming an infantry weapon practical both in offensive actions against infantry and as a defensive measure against enemy cavalry.
Our War Scythe has a convexly curved cutting blade. The blade is sharpened on the convex curve. The War Scythe head is crafted from carbon steel.
The original War Scythes often reached lengths of more than two meters. That is more than is offered here because of transportation limit (6' - 5"). We can supply this weapon replica taken apart with a longer pole. In that case, you will have to put the parts together by your own. You wilI usually have to insert iron pins (included in delivery) in the pre-drilled holes and hammer them flat at the end, whereby the parts get riveted together.
The production of chain mail armor requires a lot of human handiwork. We were affected by an important fact that also changed the rules in many other industries. The labor costs of European workers far exceed the labor costs in Asia, even if you take into account the transport costs from Asia! For this simple reason, in the EU there are no workshops that manufacture chain mail armor professionally - and we are working with professionals only! Hobby-producers, who occasionally work in their garages, do not fit into our business concept. We are very sorry; we cannot make for you any mail armor made-to-your measure. Some re-enactors found a solution for this situation: they buy our imported standard-sized mail shirts (sometimes oversize or several pieces), unravel them and make tailor-made mail shirts, legs and other armor parts by themselves.
