The Sergeant’s Halberd is often seen as a ceremonial item, carried as a badge of rank by officers and NCO’s alike, but in the 18th and 19th Century, it was a much feared weapon of war as well! Unlike its heavy-duty brethren 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 was a deceptively quick and astonishingly effective weapon of war. Cold Steel’s 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 also fully sharpened and surprisingly durable. 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.
