The military fork is a medieval polearm. It consists of a staff of about 7 feet in length with 2 parallel spikes at the end. These spikes are often hooked to help pull horsemen from their mounts. Some military forks will also have a blade below the spikes, giving the weapon a wide range of possible attacks.
The military fork, like many polearms, is based upon a farming tool. This weapon is used most often in a formation of troops, as its length makes it a little unwieldy in open combats. It is also very useful in climbing walls and lifting baskets of supplies, making this one of the most versatile weapons around.
