A Lochaber Pole Axe is a Scottish pole weapon that looks quite similar to a bardiche or a voulge, although in reality, its function is more closely aligned with a halberd, as it has all the same features that make the halberd a truly devastating weapon. In fact, the only difference between a Lochaber Axe and a halberd is size, with the lochaber axe having a smaller haft. This axe possesses a wide, cleaving head, similar to what one would expect to find a voulge. The flat edge of the axe lends crushing force to every blow, which helps drive the blade deeper when swung, while it also comes to a sharp point, ensuring that it can deliver a good thrust as well as a good hack. The back of the blade features a curved metal hook, while the back of the axes mount also features a mounted spike for penetrating armor. The axes head is crafted from carbon steel and measures approximately 20 inches long, and it comes mounted, via two sockets, to a hardwood shaft that measures 42 inches long. If you are looking for all the function of a halberd in a slightly shorter package, than this Lochaber Pole Axe is just the weapon you are looking for, whether you are looking to wield it or show it off as a part of your display. Blade is not pre-sharpened but can be sharpened by the user.
