What about a halberd? I mean, you get the pointy end of a spear, plus a giant axe head on a stick. Sure, up close it is absolutely useless, but you have to let them get that close.

Considering the fact that you're holding a gigantic spear-headed axe on a stick, that isn't likely.

The extra weight is a liability unless you're on top of a wall where you have the convenience of lopping off, well, anything that comes into reach.

Looks weighted well to me. How would it be a liability if it's not unwieldy, that weight far from the pivot would if anything actually be better for more force behind every blow. Halberds are awesome.

Eh what? Halberds would rarely ever get longer than 2 meters. You could proficiently take down any close threats that aren't so close they're in your face. You mean pikes? Those were the incredibly long spears. Halberds have all the benefits of a two handed axe with the extra benefits of a versatile axe head to fend off heavy infantry, and hopefully cavalry too. The only weapon that'd give the halberd a run for its usefulness would probably be the bastard sword I'd reckon. Most all other weapons, including most kinds of swords, to get so close to a halberdier as to make a halberd useless would render their own weapon useless too. You'd still be facing someone with a staff and a hook, and both would probably just pull out their knives and begin stabbing each other in the face at that point anyways. Barely even close to being useless.

Well, let's say you're going away from Earth on huge spaceship and suddenly shit goes wrong and you have Super Mutants. Social Experiments prepared them for this.

I honestly prefer using a pebble as a weapon.

i have always wanted to see a European knight fight a samurai..
granted the knight would win in the 1st charge but the internet flame war would be hilarious
seriously light Armour plus katana plus on foot doesn't beat heavy Armour (still maneuverable) plus lance and heavy sword plus War Horse.
plus knights dont do sissy crap like calligraphy

im sory for the rant i just find it annoying how so many people think samurai were the greatest warriors ever and the hole katana thing.

any my favorite weapon in the era would definitely be the horse and lance (my military sense is vary romantic and gota love the cavalry charge )

I would rather see a knight and a samurai face off against a norse berserker and a celt warrior.
