Another member of the Halberd family, The Partisan was a semi-long, doubled-bladed weapon. Along the sides of the blade were single raised protrusions (one per side). Mounted on a 6 to 8 foot pole, the Partisan was an excellent sword fencing weapon. It saw service throughout the Middle Ages, (The Battle of Bosworth Field - 1485) and still serves as the principle ceremonial weapon of the English Yeoman of The Guard.
