    Technically that isn't a polehammer,(lucerne hammer or 'bec de corbin' crows beak) it is too short and lacks the spike on the end like pole axes, it's just a warhammer. A lot of those moves are more effective with a longer weapon but the principles remain the same. Though the likelihood would be that you would be armoured in a harness and facing similarly armed opponents could be quite high, so half-swording would be a likely technique for the sword wielder to get the point of the sword into gaps in the armour.
