The halberd has been a staple in medieval warfare for years. The combined functions of an axe and a spear make this a deadly armament. This particular halberd, the Spanish Parade Halberd, by Marto, is a reproduction of a typical 16th century weapon. Perhaps the greatest recognition of the use of a halberd was in the Spanish military formation known as the tercio, a formation that gained notoriety and fear thanks to its incredibly effectiveness.
The handle of this halberd is made of wood, ornamented with fringed fabric plumes. It comes in two pieces that screw together. The head is made in cast metal with a frontal axe-head, a rear curved beak and a large central spontoon. The etched floral motif decorations show the Spanish Parade Halberd, by Marto, is primarily a parade arm, an item meant more for decoration then for use.
