A halberd is a pole arm with a long haft topped with a blade that combines an axe head, a point and a beak.

A variant of the halberd, called the naginata, is rumored to be available in special shops. The naginata has similar but enhanced properties as the halberd, and is considered to be the better choice for the halberdier.
