Would I be correct in assuming that 'glavo' is derived from glaive?
In which case what is a glaive? Or for that matter a halberd?
Clearly, I need an Esperanto-medieval arms and armour dictionary :)
For halberd, you have two options,
1: A polearm that has both an axe-head and a spear-head: https://www.medievalcollectibles.com/images/Category/medium/18.png
2: Meta Knight's ship: http://orig14.deviantart.net/1fdc/f/2008/148/f/e/the_halberd_by_glitchguy2.jpg
In french a glaive is a short and large sword which was invented during tge Ancient history if I remember well.
Probably from gladius. A glaive is a "sword-on-a-stick" variety of polearm.
If you read the serie " Sword of Truth" , you are going to read this word a lot hahahah
As long as there's only one "duol" and it's sticking part of the way out.
I know this is supposed to be a metaphor, but the image of someone chastising a living sword is too good to pass up
I just realized that as a fencer, I should look up more weapon-related words. You can never have too many of those.
