Tool, Military, Piercing, Courtier, Latin Europe
This is a weapon derived from a common eating tool carried by most people around the world since the Iron Age, a sort of a spike something like a small ice-pick. Poniards were also made and used specifically as weapons, but similar spikes intended for use as tools can be put to the same use; namely to puncture through flesh and clothing – or find the gaps in armour. The name Misericorde was derived from their traditional use to finish off armoured foes with a coup-de-grace.
Misericorde, French, 18th C
