Whats the name of this weapons?

There is a medieval weapon that looks like a falx with a rondel hand guard, I can't find an image of it now but I think you have one in one of your codex pictures.

There are some glaives like that, including some short versions which I didn't make stats for in the game. I do have a painting with some in the Armor / Missile Weapons / Guns book.

You can see some similar glaive like weapons here though none of the photos have a roundel, I've seen some other similar ones which do.

There is also the awl-pike and something like awl-swords with roundels that you see in some of the fecthbucher, like the ones on this page

But I don't have stats for those either (I do have the ahlespiess though)

page 24, the one of soldiers executing a bunch of civilians, looks like monks or priests. The guy in the center on the left has one of those glaives with a roundel, you can just make out the roundel over his gauntlet.

Ok, I see him, but it looks like wood goes past the rondel, to me it looks more like an axe with a rondel midway up.

Well, yeah it's sort of a glaive technically but basically like you said. You see a lot like this which look like an ordinary pole-arm glaive which has been cut down to make a hand-weapon. But I think it's just like the roundel you see on an ahelespiess or a lot of polearms, and quite a few maces and axes as well. The roundel may be just above the grip or it might be just below the business end, I've seen both ways.

There are also a bunch of wierd falchions like that, you can find some threads with a lot of period artwork on them on Myarmoury.
