Spetum

A Spetum

The Spetum was a pole weapon used during the 13th century. It was composed of a three pointed metal head mounted on the end of a pole. The pole itself was generally between 6 and 8 feet in length and the main blade was typically 12 to 14 inches long.

The unique thing about the spetum was that all three prongs were blades and the side blades were useful for slashing.
