Spears and polearms are among the most favored battlefield weapons in many different cultures throughout feudal history. Their great length makes them ideal for foot soldiers fighting mounted men, and when a group of soldiers all have one, they can create a nearly impenetrable area of defense. Many times, polearms were also created to be lightweight and allow the wielder to make swift attacks from a longer range than other close-combat weapons. The weapon’s range and swiftness puts the wielder at a great advantage against a man with a sword or knife.
If you’re curious about spears and polearms, Swords of Northshire offers a huge collection of these long-handled, lightweight pieces.
