Commonly confused medieval weapons, a powerpoint by me.

THIS is a WAR SCYTHE, a scythe actually used in combat. Notice it is not a useless piece of shit and is an actual functional weapon.
The only reason why death is pictured with a FARMING scythe is because he harvests souls.
Please observe how one is metal and protects the arm and hand from swords, and one is leather and protects the arm while allowing manual dexterity.
