See Nicolle figure 811p. 4 7/8" total length. Base bolster for the cane shaft. Thickened medial tapering to the fully sharpened edge. Originating with the Mongols, the effectiveness against lightly protected troops, such as most Crusaders were, caused the form to be quickly adopted by Turkic bowmen by 1100 AD.Listing and template services provided by inkFrog
