This is a common question, considering how difficult it is to fight a spear/halberd/poleaxe/etc with a sword: Can't you just cut the wooden haft? Well, you can try... But is the opponent going to let you?
And if it succeeds, what sort of damage to the pole can you expect? In this video I talk about my opinion on the video, demonstrate a few techniques, and test a sharp longsword against an ash and hickory pole.
