A large weapon with a long blade curved nearly into a semi-circle. Both edges of the shotel are sharpened, excepting one blunted area on the outside upper blade. The cross-section of the weapon is nearly diamond shaped. The sword is designed to be used two handed and is capable of dismounting opponents in a hooking swing. Its extreme curve allows it to reach around shields and still land a blow. The shotel weighs about 2.6lbs and is 40” long.
