The medieval man-at-arms was a stalwart and dependable fighter who exhibited great martial prowess with a range of weapons. He was the veteran of many conflicts and was often first into the fray. To honor these rugged, salt-of-the-earth warriors, Cold Steel has created a range of true journeyman's weapons called the Man at Arms (MAA) Collection.
These battle-ready weapons may lack the gleaming blades and polished silver steelwork of Cold Steel's high-end weapons, but they are quite similar in quality and performance. The fully sharpened and blued blades have a distinctive gun metal finish that complements the handles. And when well-oiled, they are gleamingly beautiful in their own right.
The Man at Arms collection features a selection of some of Cold Steel's finest blades, but at a markedly reduced price. If you always wanted a Cold Steel piece but couldn't afford one, this collection is made for you.
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, but 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.
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 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.
