The above image is called the Man Catcher. It’s a weapon that was used in Europe from around 1601 to 1800. It was used during times of war to pull riders off their horses. The business end was shoved onto someone’s neck and then the person using it pulled them off their horse.
What a nasty weapon. This thing, it was actually used on people. It goes to show that people back in olden times were mean and sadistic.
