In the 13th century people strived to combine hewing and percussion weapons. During the 14th century a hook was placed on the back side to pull enemy cavalrymen from their horses. As a result infantrymen suddenly became a serious opponent of the cavalry. The bill originated from the normal sickle that was used for harvesting. These weapons were for the average infantrymen and could be cheaply made. Around the 15th century weapons like this were used all over Europe. Product details:
