As a bec de corbin, the golden bec de corbin was a combination of a hammerhead, hooked "beak", and spike mounted atop a long pole. Typical becs de corbin are functionally war picks, not war hammers, as the chief form of attack was designed to be dealt through the beak, which could shred through enemy armor. Even so, the golden bec de corbin was based on the type employed by the French Assassins which featured a leaf-shaped spike so broad and prominent that the weapon was in some respects more of a spear.
As its name describes, it was merely a bec de corbin with its blade ornately decorated with gold. Complementing this, the upper section of the pole was painted with a rich red. Nevertheless, its elegance came at the price of practicality, as the weapon was overall weaker and afforded less protection than the basic bec de corbin.
