Medieval halberds are polearms crafted with a spiked axe blade mounted on a long shaft and a hook or thorn on the reverse side of the blade. Due to this three-part design, functional halberds can slice, thrust, and hook opponents in combat. Used primarily during the 14th and 15th centuries, the historical halberd was especially effective against infantry and mounted knights, making it a good weapon for foot soldiers to wield. At Buying a Sword, we offer a great selection of battle ready halberds and similar functional pole weapons like bardiches, pollaxes, billhooks, and glaives.
