when i was a kid i had this wooden sword from Medieval Times and occasionally I would turn it around and hold it by the blade and act like the crossguard/hilt area was an axe

I of course had NO IDEA that this was ACTUALLY A THING people would do with their swords back in the day and was a big reason why full-metal gauntlets existed

of course it wasnt to "pretend it was an axe" but to smash people's helmets in with the heavy metal crossguard and pommel, but still
