    I love this piece! I really do. Four stars, only because there’s no 4.5, but this is just about perfect. Points of discussion:

    Overall style: I love that it’s a pole arm, but that it doesn’t have the traditional axe-spear (halberd) head look. Nice variety. Looks great hanging with my other Pole Arms.

    Shaft: it mounts to a 1.5″ shaft that is HEAVY DUTY. You won’t have any strength concerns with this baby! You MAY lose a little length, as I had to remove a couple inches off of the tapered end to get a good fit. Not a big deal though.

    Main Edge: Nice and Sharp. Unfortunately, lol, it’s odd geometry, while a pro in terms of looks, may be a bit awkward for actual cutting or combat. I mean… Sure, if you’re being charged by a mounted knight, it would be perfect, but… I mean… What are the odds?

    Spear Point: As a thrusting weapon, it ends in a needle-like point. Boom. The drawback is that it’s only edged on one side – the same side as the main cutting edge. So it won’t be that useful on its own as a slashing feature. (And a double -dge might have made it better as a thrusting/piercing weapon.)

    Rear Beak: the rear point is very small, as it would be on a weapon of this type. It’ll still punch a hole in something on a full swing, but it won’t get much depth, and you’ll have to hit perfectly SQUARE. It has a cutting edge as well, on the lower side, but it’s VERY short, and not as sharp as the other edges.

    Overall though, I LOVE this piece, and am VERY happy with the purchase.
