The spadone is a two-handed sword used by knights during Medieval times. One can also use it with only one hand, or at times a knight would hold the middle of the blade in his hands and use it as a spear.


The spadone was mainly a hack and slash weapon, but it could also be used as a spear, and its pommel could be used as a crushing weapon, usually targeted at an opponents face. A knight could also hold it as a staff to deflect attacks, with the hilt in one hand and the blade in the other.
