The dagger-axe, or ge, is a wooden-shafted polearm with a perpendicular dagger-blade. Attacks are made with a swinging motion, but some variants also have a spear head.

The dagger-axe is an early polearm, and one of the first weapons developed explicitly for war (rather than developed from farming or hunting tools). It has a bronze, jade or stone dagger-like blade mounted perpendicularly to the tip of a wooden shaft. The dagger-axe is the precursor to the halberd, but can still be found as rank-and-file weapons in armies that have not moved on to the more versatile spear, or trained their troops with martial polearms.
