Encyclopedia of historical weapons - Pollaxe

(The preferred spelling to polaxe or poleaxe). A knightly staff weapon, its head being an axehead, usually balanced by a fluke or hammerhead, and sur­mounted by a steel spike. The shaft was protected by steel cheeks and the hand by a steel rondel. Used from the fifteenth century for foot combats and for war. The compo­nent 'pole' in the name refers not to the staff, but the Old English word 'poll' (head). See also Hache
