Seen primarily in Scandinavian Countries, this weapon is best described as a sword mounted on a staff. It was considered a dual weapon, incorporating sword fencing and pike tactics. Pole lengths could be rather long (around 8 to 12 feet). Incorporating the length of the sword-end, the weapon could reach 18 to 20 feet long! Developed for use against mounted troops, the weapon was documented as being used at The Battle of Elfsborg (1502).
