Etymology Edit

The Francisca was the primary weapon used by the Franks, a group of barbarians that settled in what is now known as France. The Francisca was a versatile and unique weapon. The axe was designed for close and ranged combat. When thrown, the curvature of the blade allowed it to bounce and pursue the enemy, but it was sturdy and light enough to be used on nearby enemies.
