Oftentimes during the medieval era, the peasantry had to fend for themselves and so many crafted weapons by taking farm tools and repurposing them. This Scythe is based on a typical farm implement that is been redesigned and balanced for war. Traditionally, the scythe is a farm implement that is used for reaping harvests of grain, wheat, and other crops, using its curved blade and long haft to easily reach and cut through stalks and plant-matter. This pole weapon utilizes the same principle, taking the scythes curved blade and angling it upward so that it can be swung like a spear or a halberd, allowing its curved blade to cut easily into enemy ranks, and as an added bonus, the new angle of the blade makes this pole weapon an effective spear, too. This weapons simple yet effective head is crafted from carbon steel and measures approximately 28.75 inches long, while its hardwood haft measures 72 inches long. Sometimes, it is the simple weapons that are the most effective, and that is why this war Scythe makes for an effective training weapon, as well as a great display of how ingenious medieval troops could be.
