Spears underwent a variety of changes during the medieval era, often shifting as needs in battle changed. The Corseque, for instance, takes the typical spear blade and splits into three parts, creating a rather impressive and lethal looking weapon. The corseque is claimed to have originated in Corsica, from which it derives its name. This weapon could also be construed as being closely related to the ranseur, thanks to its distinctive spear-head. The corseque features a traditional spear head with a triangular point for thrusting, as well as two side blades, known as wings or flukes, that have split off from the blade, creating a broad spear-point that delivers a trio of deadly stabs, or possesses a variety of other functions. As the shorter side blades are usually stronger, they are perfect for defense, allowing a spearman wielding a corseque to fend off sword-fighters with ease, even allowing him to disarm them with a deft twist of his weapon, should he lock their sword into the crook of his spear. The head of this lethal looking weapon is crafted from carbon steel and measures approximately 24.75 inches long, while the hardwood pole measures approximately 72 inches long. Impressive size gives the Corseque reach, and an authentic medieval look makes this weapon great to show off as a part of your collection, as well as a fun spear to practice with when you take to the field.
