This German Halberd Head is 52cm" in overall length and is 31cm wide. It is made in high carbon steel and the edges are unsharpened. This is a widely used item by re-enactment groups. It has a 22cm long tappered shaft housing that has a 3cm opening.
This is an accurate replication of a German Halberd found in museum collections.
With a long history of use, the poleaxe was very popular weapon. With a good sharp point it could be used as a short spear, the back hammer or spike could be used to batter or pierce armour and the axe head itself was quite lethal. This is a superb copy and an excellent example of a polearm.
