Weapon of the Day

Spontoon (half-pike)

This weapon consists of a 6 foot long shaft with a double edge blade attached to the top. At the base of the blade is another crescent shaped blade extending out. The tips of the crescent pointed up and the belly is sharpened. The weapon is used similar to a pike though is more easily maneuvered due to its shorter length. The blade length is approximately 12 inches making the overall length of the weapon 7 feet. It weighs about 9.8lbs. It originated in Italy.
