The pollaxe (or polaxe, or poleaxe) became popular in the 14th and 15th centuries, during the golden age of plate mail. Armor became so strong during this time that it became really, really difficult to actually kill anyone (well, anyone of importance, right?). So the polaxe was created. A long shaft, crowned with a steel head that featured an axe-blade on one side and a spike or hammer-head on the other. And usually with another spike at the top, just to make it deadly from any angle.
