CS89MSG: 89MSG Man at Arms Sergeant's Halberd
Cold Steel
Cold Steel President Lynn C Thompson has long been fascinated by Pole Arms, Spears and Halberds.

The Sergeant's Halberd is often seen as a ceremonial item, carried as a badge of rank by officers and NCOs alike in the 18th and 19th Century, it was a much feared weapon of war as well.

Unlike its heavy-duty brethren (see Swiss Halberd) 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, the Sergeant's Halberd is a deceptively quick and astonishingly effective weapon.

This interpretation of the Sergeant's Halberd is representative of the battlefield incarnation of this historical tool. Though it features costly but attractive embellishments and ornamentation, it is a true warrior through and though. 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!

The Sergeant's Halberd is a perfect addition to the collection of any historical re-enactor or Western Martial Artist and it makes a terrifically effective emergency self-defense tool when your life is on the line.

Don't waste your money.
This thing is absolute trash. I received this halberd today, and had nothing but problems with it right from the start. First of all, the shaft and the head don't fit together; there's a crossbar in the socket of the head that prevents the shaft from going into it far enough to be even slightly tight. I had to attempt to shave the piece down myself with a sander. Once I had the head somewhat secured, I stabbed a simple 2x4 with it; about 6 inches of the point snapped right off. Cold Steel brags about having "the world's hardest, strongest knives," but this thing broke just a thrift-store knockoff. Don't waste your money. Cold Steel has lost it.

Must-have halberd!
Pattern and size are outstanding. Halberd comes reasonably sharp - certainly adequate. The ash pole is finished very nicely. It looks great and it's actually functional.The only negative, and it's not a big deal, is fitting the blade to the shaft isn't terribly snug out of the box. I had to whittle away a bit at the ash pole to get a good fit and then secure it in place.KnifeCenter packaged the halberd really well - it arrived in pristine condition.
