Halberds

A weapon capable of multi-tasking is a very good thing. Take the halberd, for example, which is a brutal medieval weapon that was capable of doing almost everything on a battlefield. And that is precisely why Dark Knight Armoury carries a number of this superb weapon, because medieval enthusiasts and reenactors deserve to access to this impressive weapon. The halberd came to prominence in medieval warfare during the 14th and 15th centuries, where this impressive weapon was used to deadly effect. What made the halberd so efficient and so useful was its design, which incorporated several features that made any soldier who laid hands on the halberd a threat to any number of different warriors. The broad, cleaving axe blade of a halberd gave it a wicked strike, one that allowed it to wound and hack with all the efficiency of an axe, except at greater range. The halberds long, spear-like point gave it the power to penetrate armor and thrust like a spear, extending a warriors range, while also making it great for removing a warrior from horseback. And the hook on the back served a similar purpose, acting as a great implement for taking mounted warriors off their mounts, while also adding a dangerous edge that allowed a soldier to hook enemies and deliver a wicked backswing that had the potential to penetrate armor. In expert hands, the halberd was a lethal weapon, one that rivaled and sometimes exceeded the weapons of the time. At Dark Knight Armoury, we offer a number of halberds, both functional and decorative, that are perfect for a variety of uses. A good, solid functional halberd is a great way to catch your opponent off-guard with a multipurpose weapon straight of a medieval army, plus they look awesome and are an absolute blast to handle. Our more decorative ones are no less impressive, featuring elegant designs and a stunning look that makes the halberd a great display piece and decoration that will awe all who see it. Also included in this section are a variety of blades and pole arms that are similar in function to a halberd, like heavy, cleaving bardiches and versatile gisarmes and voulges that any warrior can wield to catch their foe off balance in battle. So if you need a weapon that can do it all, then perhaps you might want to try out a halberd from Dark Knight Armoury. Whether you are using it reenactment, training, or just solo practice, you will not be disappointed with how well a halberd performs, especially once you get the hang of using it to its fullest extent.

"We love Medieval/Magical/Mythical themed stuff so so much, so we LOVE Dark Knight Armoury. In fact, we are such big fans of this theme that we named our dogs Phoenix and Gryphon, since they go with that theme. We love collecting items that relate to this theme. Of course we want absolutely everything that has a phoenix or gryphon on it, to match our dogs' names, and Dark Knight Armoury has plenty. We also love collecting dragons, unicorns, fairies, and more. In fact, we recently had a Medieval themed birthday party for our golden retriever Gryphon, and Dark Knight Armoury was perfect for prizes, goody bag items, and decorative accents for the party. Here is a collage with photos from the Medieval party, which Dark Knight Armoury was a big part of. Everyone dressed as knights at the party, with helmets and armor vests. We decorated the room with all sorts of medieval scenes, like knights jousting, a maiden in a tower, a medieval banquet, and more. We also made snacks to match, like cookie targets with pretzel arrows, torches out of ice cream cones and orangey snack flames, and crests made from cheese and crackers. We had all medieval themed games, and the guests especially loved the prizes, which included dragon and unicorn boxes and necklaces, which we got from your site. As you can see, we are definitely Dark Knight Armoury Superfans and would recommend your site to everyone!"
