The halberd was especially effective in rank and file operations on a mass scale. German landsknechts, the notorious mercenaries of the late 15th century, used especially skilled fighters with halberds on the front line. Behind these "double soldiers," as they were called because they received double remuneration, the landsknechts stood with long spears, filling the gaps in the action with their jabs.
Our Landsknecht Halberd of tempered carbon steel and finely grained hardwood is based on an original prototype from a private collection. A cross-shaped cavity embellishes the axe head, on the back of which a hook measures approx. 12.5 cm. The rounded square cross-section of the staff prevented the axe head from being turned to the side in the heat of battle. A steel sleeve is fastened to the bottom end of the shaft.
