Although a weapon called war scythe existed, this was a regular scythe modified to function like a fauchard, with the blade pointing in the same direction as the pole, not like regular scythe as one sees in fiction. However, some sickles (such as Japanese kama and Mediterranean falx) have been used for combat as is, unlike scythes.
