Oh, the memories from M&B! :)
You probably know where I am going with this.
I think M&B invented that weapon.
Kind of the fence. On one hand, it doubt anything like that ever existed. On the other… it’s a giant cleaver.
Hmm, Hmm, Hmm…
There is a real weapon that is the same thing, but it is called a Kampilan and is NOT european.
It is two-handed. Philipino
