The 'Acorn roller' rubber mace heads are legal for use in Lochac.
The rubber 'Talhoffer' pole axe heads are legal for use in Lochac.
Because of the nature of our activities and the ability of our weapons to break during use the "striking surface" of a weapon is to be considered throughout the entire striking portion, blade, or head, of the weapon, not only the outside "skin" or layer. This includes all interior construction materials and parts no matter how "deep" inside.
Please note that this means materials such as 'chopping board' plastic may not be used for the construction of weapon heads.
The Lochac Marshals Handbook has been approved and supersedes any previous editions.
As per the announcement from the SCA US and the changes to the Society Marshals' Handbook in May 2012, polypropylene round rod of a diameter no greater than 31.8mm is now permissible as an alternative to rattan for single handed weapons within Lochac.Back to top
