I came across a picture of an Effigy in the following 2 books showing a Knight? with a round shield and military pick (pick-hammer).
The picture is a drawing of the Effigy by Stothard (see attached).
Does anyone have a clearer / high-res pic to post as the one is both books is blurry and small?
Maybe even a photo of the effigy itself?

Knight: Noble Warrior of England 1200-1600 By Christopher Gravett
Can anyone provide me with more information about the Effigy and the arms and armour depicted?
I am especially interested in the military pick (pick-hammer).
I have managed to find 3 other exampls of military picks (pick-hammers):
Horseman's hammer, Hungary, 1st half 17th century (Hermann Historica)
Dresden Historisches Museum

Two views are given of a Medieval martel de fer (a weapon used by mounted knights) found during excavations by Winchester College at Wolvesey Castle, Winchester, in 1880.
If anyone has any information or thoughts on these types of weapons please post.
If anyone has more pictures of the examples above or other examples please post.
