It was able to Pierce the thickest steel Armor, and pulverize a sturdy helmet or shield. The halberd's "beak" could also be used to drag a heavily armored KNIGHT from his mount to be summarily Butchered by the halberd wielders brothers in arms.

Featuring a fully sharpened spike, a XE blade and beak (hook) it is a multi-faceted weapon that can hack, stab or entangle even a heavily armed and armored opponent.
