The "Get What You Pay For" Halberd


In this review I'm giving you my impression of the Swiss Halberd by Cold Steel. As far as historical polearm reproductions are concerned it's budget class. Is it worth your money? Let's take a look...

#Polearm #Halberd #Review
  • Honest M'aiq

    What the heck is Canadian government thinking like-Yeah , let's ban halberds , you never know when somebody can go outside with a halberd you know.Seriously what the hell

  • Nerobyrne

    The three crosses guarantee extra holy damage against Saracens!

  • Frank Teryngel

    At least they didn't send you just location of iron ore mines and forest.

  • Ryu Fireheart

    This is not a halberd. this is a thumbs-up-in-a-pole. A weapon made to fight people that dislike videos for fun.

  • MiYaMa

    Polearms are like Pizza, even the bad ones are still good.

  • Captain Squirrel

    Halberds are so good they dont even need to have a pommel.

  • Chery King

    Is that the most versatile weapon in the world?

  • Ookami

    Why restricted? 1) Take strong enough polearm2) Make a whole new "door" to your neighbour's appartment3) ???4) Profit

  • Charles

    Cold steel's quality leaves me rather cold... seriously, leaving the weapon to be assembled by the customers themselves is not just lazy, it's unacceptable.

  • Connor Andrews

    Like Wow, IKEA sells halberds, now that´s new to me. xD

  • Belias Phyre

    Why do I feel my money would be better spent in the garden tool section at the home depot?

  • ParanoeX

    Skall buys a condom and the clerk smiles and says "go get 'em, tiger" and Skall replies "thanks, gonna be fun! just making this condom work is gonna be difficult and especially putting it on next.. but then i get to testing and im sure i can penetrate my sword through the chest and pierce this condom"... the look on clerk's face would be priceless xD

  • MercenaryJames

    Just go out to a public place and yell "DAUBENY!! DAUBENY SHOW YOURSELF!!!!"

  • Phaithrider94

    "Thats an ominous shadow" well now we demand a shadow review for every weapon/sharp object you review from here on out

  • Mt. Baldwin

    This is going to be impossible to say without a lot of laughter. O.k. your shaft was a defective one (see what I mean?) normally cold steel shafts come (!) tapered to a semi point to allow the head to fit snuggly and easily. I've got a few cold steel polearms and all the shafts came tapered.

  • Mayor League Gamers

    Please review the polehammer

  • Unlimited Power

    Good videos to fap to. Really like your channel

  • Sir Tropical

    To be fair, it is a fairly mass produced polearm and it's 120$ to boot so in all fairness, I expected something worse when hearing the price. I reckon if you were to get a dedicated blacksmith and have it made to battle specifications (I think that's a thing) I reckon you'll have much more fun with it.

  • Tywin Lannister

    Now i need some polehammer review

  • RON RoNiNgton

    This guys arms are polearms

  • pyruleanfire demon

    It looks like it was cut from sheet metal instead of forged. Even the socket looks like its rolled sheet metal that had a slit for the blade then welded shut. As for the pole, i could see it needing some shaping. Socket styles like that need the pole to be a little fatter so it bites the pole & gets driven onto the pole more securely but what you got was an unshaped pole, thats just sloppy. Add to it they didnt include a couple of pins to lock the socket & pole together, they'd be getting a nasty phone call about the quality of their goods.

  • 50 Stitches Steel

    I think you might wanna blame cult of athena on this. If I were to guess they are probably buying the Cold Steel "seconds" or even "thirds", that they sometimes sell. The distributer buying them are well aware of these things before buying them but they get them at a drastically reduced price. Thats how they are able to sell them so cheap too

  • Aldor

    Yeah, those poles are pain in the ass

  • Matti Laiho

    Number 1 thing I've learnt from watching videos about sword reproductions: Don't touch Cold Steel products.

  • Matthew Cooper

    I own a few cold steel swords, and really they’re not as bad as people say, at least the ones I own. As far as pole arms, I only own a spear, but you can tell by the design they don’t really care much about historical accuracy and fancy designs. They basically just say “It has the parts to make it a insert weapon here let’s get it out.

  • Nick Dzink

    Condom Heart?Deliverance!

  • Rice Sama

    I mean you say its affordable. But is it really that much different than a nice shovel which would have a sturdy pole and hardened metal, which costs 30$...Using the price to justify the unfinished nature is unacceptable. (not harping on you, but coldsteel) great review XD

  • tom possessed

    Took you long enough and that Halbert needs a pommel.

  • Angel Pacheco

    The red hilted halberd was one of my favorite weapons in Souls.

  • John Doe

    8:26: I wonder what that guy with the bike was thinking.Judging from some of those last hits in the video this thing at least seems very durable, is that true? If you can get around the annoyance of assembling it yourself this seems like a really great budget halberd?

  • Big Ridge

    The Halberd looks like it's giving the middle finger.

  • Jacob Keary

    Skall, you also have to realise how niche of a product this is even for cold steel. They probably only sell like a few hundred of these throughout a given business year.I'm not saying that this excuses the problems with it but I'd imagine it's at least why. It's just a matter of cold steel being willing to disappoint the 5 customers that bought thus really impractical to shit item the probably make less money on than one of their more common items like knives.

  • Ronald Pradesya

    the moment i see it have wooden handle... pls dont let Erik use it...

  • insorte diaboli

    ive had more experience with cold steel products than i would like to admit, they are a very lazy company who ships out sub par things for the maximum amount of money, they do crappy jobs sharpening, and pretty much everything they have is useable but so far from historicaly accurate that they are laughable, their weapons work but they dont work well and they charge rediculous amounts of money for crappy weapons. they do make great knives though but thats about all they make thats great. everything i have bought from them has been more than dissapointing, personaly i would never buy anything from them ever again and i recommend others not buy their products either unless your going to buy a knife. again,, their knives are pretty decent but everythhing else they make is just terrible, only good for backyard bottle cutting

  • Lycan Thorpe

    Lucky gargoyles never drop me a halberd when i farm them ......

  • JOSEPH WODARCZYK

    It's still incomplete though, I don't see a pommel anywhere.

  • Asmin Siza

    Looks like a misshapen mutant spade.

  • Germanium

    It is a 'budget halberd' then.

  • Cheeki Chan

    anytime to take a look with the 2500years old mysterious bronze sword of goujian

  • Sir Fijoe

    FINALLY! I've been waiting for this halberd review for months.

  • Adagamante

    I love this type of halberd! Not this one specifically, but I love the look of these more crude and square-ish halberds. Even made one for myself (on the cheaty 'cut and weld' kind of way, but still)

  • AJM2

    That's the handle for the cold steel PoleAxe. No taper on that weapon. Like so others can see.

  • Conner Bailey

    You should get a Guan Dao and review it it’s my favorite pole arm. I’ve seen you’re pu dao but the Guan Dao is quite different

  • Darrian Weathington

    1) find grip-able bolder2) use bolder as exercise tool3) when you become big n tuff, tie bolder to big metal rod.4) use bolder on stick as weapon. 5) become Xu Zhu. 🍲🥓😉

  • alaskankare

    wow! Did it say on the website that it wasn't assembled? LOL that's terrible. What if they didn't have tools. what's that in the corner? Oh, that's the Pole arm I bought that I can't assemble. The pole is already over length, what's it matter if it comes with another 1.5ft?

  • walter denny

    You dislike Cold Steel, and are mixed on Windlass and Hanwei, and you love Albion, but it seems like you entirely ignore Dark Sword armoury I've noticed. You looking into reviewing one at some point?

  • Crockett

    Hey Skall, are you going to the Blood and Iron in downtown or island?

  • Master of Puppets

    Awesome review! Thanks. The color scheme on this one feels oddly ugly for me as well. Consider re-painting it!

  • real squirtle squad

    Hey skall Plz do a vid on the swords from attack on titan

  • Zander Rasing

    Ooooooo sheeeeet thats flippin cool XD

  • Transmissional

    Seeing those peoples faces as they bike by is sorta funny.

  • Σάββας Ιωακειμίδης

    The three small crosses look so cool on this.

  • Noxius

    The real question is...can it be dual wielded?

  • SeraphElrick

    Wouldnt this be even more historically accurate the cheaper it gets?I mean think about it: Most people in history wouldnt have been able to afford quality weapons, therefore they would stick to the munitions grade stuff. Like this halberd.Its cheap, it does the job, it can be repaired/replaced easily, the weapon of the common soldier and thus 99% of weapons on the market.

  • E. L.

    Mine came with screws and fit reasonably well. I could have sanded it to make it fit "perfect" but it is really good just as it is. I love mine! Tough as hell, sharp too! Really fun to chase my girlfirend around the yard like a invading soldier getting his Rape and pilage on! Skall, I think you just got a bad one, or maybe I just got a good one!

  • ִ

    Lutel makes a good poleaxe - their model no. 20022 is nice.

  • Noblesse Oblige

    Is there any metal that would be a good substitute for the wood for the shafts ? (for polearms in general)

  • dplgta95

    Uh oh... I ordered a 1917 cutlass improved and now I'm almost regretting my decision...

  • Hard Gay

    0:41 needs those "menacing" (ゴゴゴゴ) katakana in the background for full effect.Also, in all honesty, being as affordable as it is does make it kind of attractive. I tend to spend the bulk of my money on other hobbies, but I still occasionally buy weapons as a side hobby. A polearm that looks badass and doesn't break the bank certainly has it's place. I would be nice if there were more polearms on the market, though.
