Man-at-Arms English Bill

#600992
This ancient forestry tool was used by peasants to hook creeping vines and hard-to-reach branches, clear foliage and - when necessary - even lop heavy limbs from trees. It didn't take much imagination to see the fighting applications of this heavy duty tool. Its next incarnation, with its sharpened edges and hooking blades was fast, agile and ferocious. A good Bill in the right hands could hook, entangle, thrust, stab, slice and chop with equal ease and oppose even heavily armed and mounted opponents. An armed force, wielding row after row of these weapons was fearsome indeed. Features a 1055 Carbon steel, fully sharpened battle-ready blade spike and hook, supported by an extra deep steel socket and stout Ash wood shaft.

Man-at-Arms Sergeant's Halberd

#600987
The Sergeant's Halberd is often seen as a ceremonial item, carried as a badge of rank by officers in the 18th and 19th Century. Unlike its heavy-duty cousins the Sergeant's Halberd was actually developed during the age of firearms and was designed to face foes with less protective armor. Lighter, faster and more maneuverable, it is a deceptively quick and astonishingly effective. Fully sharpened and surprisingly rugged and durable, it can be used as a spear for thrusting, a hook to catch, trap and entangle and as a cutting tool to chop, cut and slice. 1055 Carbon steel head with rugged Ash wood shaft.

Frankish Axe

The ancient Frankish Warriors would form a rough line an arm’s throw from their foe and hurl light spears and these axes before charging in with sword and shield for individual combat. This distinct axe is perfect for throwing with its solid steel head and hardwood shaft. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.
