A pike fitted with an axe head. This polearm had a broad, short axe blade on a 6 foot pole with a spear point at the top with a back spike.This lethal polearm of the Middle Ages always had a hook or thorn on the back side of the axe blade for grappling enemies on horseback.
The word 'halberd' is derived from the German words halm ( meaning staff), and barte (meaning axe). Used as a versatile implement against knights on horseback. The halberd was constantly developed and refined to include metal rims over the shaft making it more effective against swords. The pole increased in length to become more effective against pikes.
