The World's Most Expensive Pool Cue (Looks Like A Medieval Battleaxe)

battleaxe-pool-cue-1.jpg

This is the $150,000 Intimidator from McDermott Handcrafted Cues. It started life as an 82-pound piece of solid stainless steel, and 1,862 man hours later, became...this thing. This thing I wouldn't want to see anybody swinging that in a bar fight. Not unless they're on my side anyway.

The Intimidator is the most expensive pool cue in the world and raises the bar to a whole new level of prestige. This sensational cue is a 3D piece of art that features four bladed wings that can rip a table to shreds. The focal point is a Genuine Italian Obsidian Gemstone Sphere at the base.


Inlaid with 24K Gold, Deep Relief & French Grey Scroll Engraving

46 individual parts, including stainless steel, 24K Gold & Genuine Italian Obsidian

Over 210 separate inlays, including 112 hand-polished Precious Metal inlays on the handle

Oh man, I would totally use that to break for a game of 8-ball and, knowing me, stab myself in the back and tear one of my kidneys out. *wakes up in hospital* Did I win? "You scratched on the break." PULL THE PLUG ON ME, JUST DO IT.

A couple more shots if you're interested.

Thanks to LupusYonderboy, who has a million dollar pool cue but doesn't like to brag about it because that's how you get a million dollar pool cue stolen from you. Wealthy AND smart!

    This piece of art is the most ostentatious, complicatedly built, nonfunctional and pretentious tool for a sport that I ever seen and, I think, ever existed...

    and I want four of them!

  • Samuel Nelson

    Very fitting for McDermott. They're more famous for how much they cost than for making good cues. Case in point: note that Pechauer's 2013 cue of the year (which costs $50,000) has over 1300 inlays: https://www.pechauer.com/empyr.... McDermott's proud of having 200.

    Whoop de doo, McDermott. Whoop de doo.

    Real men are not afraid of their pool cues.

  • Dani Reader

    Fucking stupid. Imagine if a plumber showed up to a job with tools that looked all death metal. Everyone would think he was a twat. Cos he would be.

  • Guest

    This would be fitting for the Death Clock band's pool table.

  • Jade

    You'd stab the blade into your kidneys when you shot.

  • p_shep

    Can't help thinking there's a slight design flaw in a cue's design if it slices your hands off when used.

  • ODwanKenObi

    Very slight.

  • The Magnificent Newtboy

    Or very SLICE! :D get it? Slice...
