German partisan

Description:

Partisans such as this 17th or 18th century German example came into prevalent use as a polearm weapon during the Middle Ages in Europe. The partisan consists of a spearhead with lugs, or flanges, to the sides of the spear that allowed the user to parry attacks from other weapons.
