Also known as "Forest Bill," the "Black Bill," or the "Brown Bill," this was a fearsome war instrument during the middle ages. Noted 16th-century weapons expert George Silver called it the most deadly of all two-hand weapons (he lived before the invention of firearms and fighter planes, remember). Highly favored by the English from about 1300 to 1620. Hand-forged of tough, high carbon steel by the master armorers at Windlass Steelcrafts. It can be mounted on a wooden dowel from your local hardware or home supply store.

An excellent English bill head!
For the price, this bill head is a great deal! It is very straight and it is well tempered..

A note concerning the diameter of the socket: while it states 1 3/8 inch size, the INNER diameter is around 1 1/4 inch at its thickest. Hopefully this info helps when trying to taper a pole or handle to fit.

Overall it is a great value, considering that Medieval/Renaissance billhooks are hard to come by unless custom made. I highly recommend this head.
