Won’t it hit/stab the wielder if knocked/pushed in?
i know potentially it can be a handguard/armguard protection but so far as i see, most of this also sharpened or very pointy. (correct me if iam wrong, especially the historical or authentic one)
here example image, imagine if the staff wielder or the person that push it is stronger, wont that end up badly if the deerhorn knife part stab the wielder instead ? (i mean in a fighting situation, and even if that part is not sharpened it probably can hurt or even break a rib of the wielder)

feel free to edit the tag to the appropriate one.
