Polearms » Axes ID: AH3508

Information for Battle Bardiche:

the Sparth - or Bardiche was used throughout Scandinavia, Russia and Eastern Europe throughout the 16th and 17th centuries. At the time, this pole arm was known as the Bardiche. As the Bardiche has neither a lug or hook at the back, nor a spear like point ahead of the top of the shaft, which makes it quite different from the halberd. Instead, the Bardiche blade is narrow and much longer than that of a halberd - with its upper part curving back above the end of the haft and being cut off square instead of drawing to a point. Although it seems fairly certain that the true bardiche of this form was not in use before 1500 A.D., there are numerous medieval manuscript pictures which show weapons of a very similar nature as early as 1250 A.D.

Head 27 3/4" long, Pole 42" long.
