The Cold Steel Sergeants Halberd has a head of blackened 1055 high carbon steel. It has a sharpened axe head, pick and spear point – they are moderately sharp. The shaft is of stained ash wood. The halberd ships disassembled to minimize shipping cost; the head is secured to the pole with a pair of wood screws which are not included. Please note that mounting hardware from Cold Steel is not included.
This halberd is a type that would have been common in the late medieval period and Renaissance. The weapon is designed to defeat an armored opponent – It has an axehead with a countering beak-like pick and a spike-like spearhead. With a two-handed grip and a strong swing, a halberd such as this can deliver a decisive strike to an unfortunate foe.
To get a good fit with halberd head and the pole, a few inches of the tapered portion of the pole will probably have to be removed.
Please Note: Our photos show an approximation of the completed weapon – we did not screw the head to the pole. Also poles may have slight bends or warps, however, we inspect them to try and pick the best ones available but some imperfections may be present and are standard for quality.
