A very rare and complete example of a "Monks" fighting spade.

Standing over 2 metres long this is an impressive pole arm.
The thick hand hewn shaft remains strong and is still practical for martial purposes.
Atop the shaft is a thick faceted socket and a lethal, thick spade like cutting end. Its edges are sharp to sides and the curled spikes to either side are extremely dangerous.

A very rare and formidable pole fighting weapon from the 19th century.
