Poleaxes were effective at defeating armored opponents and opponents on horseback. The hook or thorn located on the spine of the axe head was used to grapple mounted warriors, and the spike on top could potentially pierce armor and deliver a killing blow when thrusted into your opposer. This replica medieval poleaxe features an open-bladed construction, meaning that the center of the axe is cut out. This reduces the weight, just as a fuller reduces the weight of a sword blade. The axe head is forged from iron, and has a weathered appearance. The 34.5-inch shaft is made from durable sheesham wood. Arm yourself for the battle ahead with this reliable poleaxe, and you’ll be prepared for anything in your way.
