Chest Ax for Medieval Combat, Buhurt-HMB
Chest ax for Medieval Combat, Buhurt-HMB manufactured by the prestigious Czech gunsmith Jiri Krondrak. A breastplate ax or long weapons ax was a long two-handed ax, with a head armed with different breastplates (blades, spikes and maces opposite the blade, sharp or unsharpened), normally modular, whose shaft is ferro (reinforcements metal on the rod) and that has a kind of rodela on the third and last third to protect and hold the grasping hand. It was used by foot soldiers between the fourteenth and sixteenth centuries, especially in France, for duels and jousts, as well as fencing. And it is said of her that it was a bastard weapon between the two-handed axes and the halberds.
