Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A weapon consisting of a blade fitted on a long handle or staff, used by the foot-soldiers of the fourteenth century and later. It varied in form, resembling sometimes the fauchard, sometimes the war-scythe, sometimes the halberd, and was frequently like an ax the blade of which, with but slight projection, has great length in the direction of the staff, and is finished at the end in a sharp point.
“I shot them down and distributed their weapons -- two spears and a voulge -- to sailors who declared they knew how to use them.”
