We ran across this axe in a private collection and immediately decided we needed to replicate it. With a long history of use, the Pole Axe was very popular in the lists, with the winner being decided by the number of blows fairly struck. It was also used in serious duels where the winner was the one who could walk away from the field. But even so, it was also quite popular for use on the field of battle. At 68" in length, the Pole Axe (also called a poll axe, since it was used to hit the head) was quite handy. With a good sharp point it could be used as a short spear, the back hammer, or spike, could be used to batter or pierce armor and the axe head itself was quite lethal. This Pole Axe is a superb copy with a high carbon blade and langets to protect the shaft. A magnificent example of a polearm.
