I know that this will be a bit vague, but here goes: what’s the weirdest weapon ever made/used in the medieval times? I meant in terms of how it’s used. I wrote the man catcher question so I would like to know if there was any weapons weirder than that myself.
Not a weird weapon, but a weird name: the (lengthened) morning star is called in Dutch 'goedendag'. That translates to good morning, or good day.
It is actually a viciously efficient and easy to produce weapon. It was very successfully used during the Battle of the Golden Spurs, in which a Flemish peasant army defeated a large French army of knights.
A morning star was wielded with one hand, with a short handle, a goedendag was more a pole weapon.
