Saw this old article at Zombease (it was new to me though) about a homemade “Pummel Pipe” melee weapon crafted from hardware store items as an ode to an old-school war hammer with a Mad Max twist. The thing looks downright vicious in a trench raider kind of way.
Interesting design, I thought.
Made from: 3/4″ diameter 24″ long steel pipe, two 3/4″ threaded connections, two 3/4″ end caps, one 3/4″ to 1/4″ adapter, one 1/4 squared plug, 3/4″ T adapter, and 550 paracord.
Probably cost ~$20 all told and, if filled with sand, would make one heck of a first impression.
