The terror of the Medieval battlefield was the mounted knight, the ground quaking as they charged on their war horses across the field, slamming into their enemy and forcing them into flight. At first the Medieval infantry had little more than farm implements to face this powerful attack – but over time these developed into devastating staff weapons, such as the bardiche.
The bardiche was used mostly in Central and Eastern Europe. It was probably derived from the Danish axe and farm implements such as the bill, which were converted into polearms for the battlefield. The bardiche was one of the shortest of the staff weapons, with a handle that was frequently only around 150 cm long. Its blade, however, was one of the largest of the Medieval polearms, often over 60 cm long. Very large and curved, this blade was secured to the haft in two locations for extra support, allowing easier use for both heavy cutting blows and lethal thrusts.
The bardiche appears in manuscripts dating back to 1200 across Europe, such as the Maintz Gospels and the Psalter-Hours of Guiluys de Boisleux.
However, with the advent of plate armour, in many places the bardiche gave way to longer weapons with more defined spikes, such as the Halberd. In Eastern European countries such as Russia and Poland, as well as places like Scotland, however, the use of the bardiche continued into the 17th century, becoming an infantry weapon on which a soldier could rest and aim his pistol.
Darksword Armorys Bardiche is based on a German weapon appearing in the Pitt Rivers Museum collection in Oxford, UK, dating back to the 14th century, but possibly as early as the 13th century. Its curved blade and shorter shaft is designed to strike with devastating force and accuracy against targets such as mailed knights and other infantry. The back of the blade can be used to hook and tear at an enemy, pulling them off their horse so that they can be finished off. The shaft is approx. 109 cm long, while the blade is approx. 24 cm wide by approx. 33 cm long.
