A bardiche is a type of polearm that was common in Europe and Russia during the XVI-XVII centuries. It’s a heavy weapon suitable for pricking and chopping. The blade of this bardiche is a bit longer compared with the regular axes. Thus, a strike is carried out by a heavy blade instead of a long handle.
The bardiche axe is rather heavy but it’s a great tool to train the stamina of your hands and strike mightier blows. After your training with bardiche, the regular equipment will be much easier to handle for you.
