Stumbled upon a somewhat similar construction, described as mid-16th century. The form of my roncone is certainly difficult to nail down. I hope to get a more typical one in the future.

The castles make me depressed, because I will never have enough for the repetitive displays of 40 of the same item. I really like the fans and circles made up of muskets and polearms. Iíd love 8...

The curve on the hooks is pretty aggressive. It is...

Attached pic is the non-business end, and is presumed to be shortened as the whole thing is only 90 inches.

The cracks are interesting, as is the undetermined treatment to the butt.

Thanks for looking into it!

The Kopia is the hollowed lance with the ball, and Iím not convinced this is the remains of one. From what brief reading Iíve done, there were likely shorter, solid...

Likely British, 1750-1800.

However, the basic shape of both the blade and the cross guard are NOT unique to Britain. It could be anything from Austrian to Dutch.

An Italian Bill (Roncone) for comment

Do any of you gentlemen have thoughts or details on this Italian Bill?

I should stick to halberds!
