That term generally is used by collectors for most complex head shaft weapons and thus applied here. Examples of this form are very rare with but a few identified. 87" overall length with massive iron head made in two pieces with a riveted sandwich joint. The point of moustache form, 11 1/4" wide and sharpened on all edges but for the short underside of the recurves which allows for them to grip rather than cut. Finely forged socket/bolster comprising over a third of its overall length. Heavy wood haft. The head with brown patina and uniform surface texture from oxidation with crisp original detail fully preserved. Very possibly as early as 18th century.
