The Guisarme

The Guisarme is a typical pole weapon that derived from hand tools of peasants and farmers. It saw use between the 11th and 15th centuries.

The imporant thing about a Guisarme is the hook that it has. This was used to hook and pull mounted knights and combatants off their horses. There are many variations of this weapon and it changed over the centuries to include blades, spikes and even a second hook. But the predominant feature that makes it a guisarme is the hook.
