In my research on medieval life, I discovered an interesting weapon called a billhook. This weapon originated from agricultural tools used by peasants before being weaponized. Like the halberd, the billhook was a very versatile polearm. It could be used as a quarterstaff, a spear, a spiked hammer, or you could use the large hook to get behind your opponent’s neck and take their heads off with a single pull. I am thinking of including this weapon in the upcoming battle of my fantasy book because I want to include something more unique than a regular old spear.
