Description

The word 'halberd' comes from the German words Halm (a staff) and Barte (an axe). The halberd is, in fact, an axe mounted on a long pole with a very specialized shape and function: the axe blade was used for hacking, the spike for thrusting, and the beak either for piercing plate armour or for pulling a knight from his saddle. The halberd was a weapon for shock troops and was used frequently by Swiss and German mercenaries.
