Ok, boys and girls! It's time for today's devastating ancient weapon! The Glaive: The Glaive evolved from the Billhook, an agricultural tool, when spikes for thrusting were added to the already formidable cutting abilities that had made the Billhook so effective with the peasant armies. You could thrust with the tip, puncture armor with the back spike, unseat riders with the hook, and cut with the edge. It was like a medieval can-opener for knights.
