The Goedendag |A Spear & Club Combination

Used historically by militia in the Franco-Flemish War of the 14th century, the goedendag is the combination of a club and a spear. It’s a medium-ranged, two-handed weapon. The pointy tip is useful for puncturing maille and gambeson, and the heavy base of the head also allows its user to perform blunt chops and bashes. The goedendag was relatively cheap to make in high quantity and therefore was the natural pick for militias at the time.
