Cold Steel 89MSW Man at Arms Swiss Halberd 89.5" Overall, Ash Wood Handle
CS89MSW: 89MSW Man at Arms Swiss Halberd
The Swiss have a reputation as a nation of riflemen. This is because men of military age are required to keep a battle rifle and ammunition at home. This, however, is a relatively more recent development. For three hundred years, starting in the 12th Century, the Swiss were widely feared for the terrible havoc they could wreak upon the battlefield with their infamous halberd!
The Swiss Halberd effectively combined the finest attributes of the spear, battle axe and hook into one devastating weapon. It was able to pierce the thickest steel armor, and pulverize a sturdy helmet or shield. The Halberd's "beak" could also be used to drag a heavily armored Knight from his mount to be summarily butchered by the Halberd wielders brothers in arms.
The Cold Steel Swiss Halberd is almost identical to its heavy duty historical counterpart, except that this is made from modern materials. Featuring a fully sharpened spike, axe blade and beak (hook) it is a multi-faceted weapon that can hack, stab or entangle even a heavily armed and armored opponent.
