I am looking for the proper name of the sword in the image below. I was not sure which stack exchange site to post this on so I put it here, figuring it was a type of medieval weaponry, if an obscure one.

    It looks to be a fantasia double headed version of the early modern war pick or horsemans pick or war hammer with pick head. – Samuel Russell Sep 11 '18 at 1:20
  • What about the long bladed part leading up to the pick though? It looks like some type of sword, to me at least. – Layla Sep 11 '18 at 1:23

    A FANTASY thing vaguely resembling a weird kind of axe. It's the first time I see a book being used as add-on armor on a pauldron. – Jos Sep 11 '18 at 1:59

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it asks for the identification of an artists fantasy. – Samuel Russell Sep 12 '18 at 6:35

It's probably something someone just made up. There is something similar, but I couldn't find a name for it. It was made in Liberia. Here's a hyperlink to the image from the Spencer Museum of Art.

Update: Commenter justCal referred to it as a kuba sword. Google search confirms.
