Description of the Product

With a long history of use, the pole axe was very popular in the lists, with the winner being decided by the number of blows fairly struck. It was also quite popular for use on the field of battle. With a good sharp point it could be used as a short spear, the back or spike could be used to pierce armor or to topple a horseman, and the axe head itself was quite lethal. The poleaxe was originally called a poll axe, as it was mainly used to aim for the opponents head. Superb copy of a magnificent example of a pole arm, with a high carbon blade and languets to protect the shaft made of hardwood. Original in a private collection.
