A Pole Arm that could trace it's “roots” to Ancient Greece, the European Ox-Tongue was so named for it's Blade head's resemblance to the tongue of an Ox!. Long and tapered, the blades were typically 6 to 12-inches long. They featured an upraised groove that ran the length of the blades body (also giving a stylized image of the animal's tongue). Mounted on a 8 to 12-foot hardwood Pole, the Blade was also double-edged. It featured a heavy (counterweight) Bar “lug” attached to the Blade head bottom. This helped create a “harder” impact when used. Designed for Hunters, the Ox-Tongue very quickly found it's way onto the battlefield. As a thrusting weapon (never thrown), it was very effective at punching through Chain Mail.
