      So... is this similar to the French 'corseque' (Cz. korseka) or Italian
      'roncone' (Cz. runka) then?
      Also, any chance of a reference for the glossary to which you refer, please?

        Alastair,
        The side 'points' or blades are much larger and project upward on an
        angle on the korseka and runka. The triangular projections on the
        ear-spoon point straight out from the shaft of the weapon and are not
        very large.

        Hope that helps,
