Alternate sheaths for hafted weapons

Post by Hakkon » Sat May 19, 2018 10:53 pm

Yes I know I harp on about hafted weapons but I would really love to see alternate locations for sheathing hafted weapons.
I think an argument could be made that a greataxe or something like the Dwaedn Bearded Axe or totem maul or even, depending on the style of the sheath/strap, even smaller hafted weapons could be drawn from the back/shoulder as well as from the hip. Plus with buckles and buttons being a thing I think that enough tension could be applied for the leather to hold a haft tight while in movement and would be relatively easy to retrieve if significant force was applied.

They wouldn't even need a specific name. Just something like 'Shoulder/back harness/strap/sling' or just 'shoulder-strap haft-frog'

I would not be against seeing a shoulder-based haft-frog. After seeing the new God of War, I loved how the axe that our favorite god-killer had was hanging over his shoulder.
