I’ve been doing pike demonstrations with students for 20 years and decided to share how I have students make pikes and the commands to use. Students LOVE this.
Where/When can a pike demonstration be used?
- As a part of a historical reenactment.
- As part of a skit. (See my book, “Give me a sword!” which includes a skit that uses a pike drill.)
- When teaching medieval literature if battles with pikes is a part of the story.
