Based on an original from the 15th century, this Burgundian poleaxe offers its wielder a trifecta of options for defeating armor; cleaving axe, puncture hammer or armor-piercing spike. As the amount of plate armor worn not only by the knightly class, but the common foot soldier increased in the later middle ages, weapons such as poleaxes took precedence on the battlefield as the best option for defeating armor. Poleaxes became, in the waning years of the medieval era, a popular weapon for tournaments and trial-by-combat.

Arms and Armor created this poleaxe from a museum piece, now in the Wallace Collection, London (A925). The top spike, measuring 8 , is integrated as a single piece with the axe, hammer and langets, making this a sturdy weapon. It is securely mounted onto a strong wooden haft. The axe edge and spike are sharp.
