EN45 High Carbon Steel
4 lb 11.8 oz

This Late Medieval Poleaxe has a head forged from high carbon steel; it is riveted to a solid hardwood haft and completed with a steel spiked butt end and steel langets.

A versatile weapon, this poleaxe has all the tools needed to rend apart and bash asunder the grandest of armored defenses. A large axehead is balanced by a hammerhead with both surmounted by a armor-piercing spike. With these at his disposal, the bearer has no shortage of options and combinations for laying low the foe.

The extended langets mounted onto the haft allow the weapon to be used to safely parry bladed weapons with little fear of incurring excess damage to the haft. The quadrangular shape of the wood haft gives the weapon an improved grip in the head and helps to ensure that the weapon will not rotate on impact with the target, thus ensuring that maximum force is imparted into the target. The butt spike can be used as an additional weapon of opportunity.

Whilst most polearms were intended to be used en-masse by men of arms, poleaxes such as this were typically a knightly weapon, or a weapon used by professional men-at-arms and mercenaries. Blunted versions were often used as a tournament weapon for poleaxe-on-poleaxe events.
