It is easy to make, and with adult supervision kids can make there own.
This is the first instructable in a series about how to make weapons and other equipment for LARP.
My main focus is that the weapons have to be safe, so kids can play with them without direct adult supervision, without getting hurt. And secondly so easy to make that big kids, with help, can make it them self.

Step 1: Things you needed
A hobby knife, with interchangeable blades.
Used dull blade
a piece of cardboard
a black marker
a cutting pad
a sleeping pad
65 cm of 3cm thick bamboo or broomstick
Step 2: The design and research fase
Now you have enough inspiration to make you own design.
Just draw some quick sketches. They don't need to be beautiful, it is just so you will get the idea about how your axe will look like.
Step 3: Cardbord template
I start by making the drawing with a pencil, and when I'm satisfied with the drawing, I make the final drawing with the black marker.
Step 4: Marking and cutting the foam
If the stick for the handle is to long, now is the time to cut it into length.
To be sure the pieces ends the right places I put numbers on them.
In piece 2 cut a hole for the handle.
