...Essays/ Split-top Polearm
This style of polearm is legal in the East and was approved by the Atlantian Marshalette for events there.
Check with your local Knights Marshal for legality in your kingdom.

This was split on the table saw. Next time I'll drill a hole and use a knife and a hammer to split the rattan (I was told that is a MUCH better, stronger way to do it).

The ribs are rattan and held in place with strapping tape. The yellow stuff is nylon towing strap. Keeps the rattan form getting dents and chunks taken out of it.
