With superior reach and armor-shattering force the Pole Axe represented the great equalizer between the common foot soldier and the terrifying juggernaut that was the Knight on horseback on the medieval battlefield. The heavy machine-gun of its day, the Pole Axe was unstoppable! The same attributes that made the Pole Axe so renowned on the battlefields of old still ring true today. Easily capable of defeating modern day armor with the same brutal efficiency with which it dispatched the Knights of old, the Pole Axe is a true powerhouse of performance. Cold Steel®'s Pole Axe is expertly drop forged from 1055 carbon steel. The wickedly sharp axe blade and brutal hammer head are differentially heat treated,leaving the "business" ends of the weapon hard, and the body a little softer to absorb shock and impact.
