A Voulge, or pole cleaver, is a type of medieval polearm that was similar to the Glaive in medieval Europe. The Voulge may resemble a glaive, but there are notable differences in construction. The attachment of the Voulge blade to the pole was usually along the side of the pole; the glaive would have a socket built into the head and was mounted on top of the pole. The blade of the voulge was broad and meant for hacking, while that of the glaive was narrow and meant for cutting. Our Voulge has a Hook incorporated into the back side of the blade and thus is referred to as a Voulge-Guisarme.
