This weapon will be familiar to anyone who does a bit of weeding in the garden as it is the Farmers Hoe.
This is a very flexible weapon in that it has a blade and a pole with which to block and attack. The shape of the head means it can also hook and strike and is quite a formidable weapon in the right hands for such an unassuming looking tool.
The form starts with the farmer with the hoe on his shoulder coming home from work in the fields he stops to wipe the sweat from his brow and looks up at the setting sun. Then he is attacked by bandits he quickly dispatches them and then carries on home, a simple farmer with his everyday tool.
