The expression “I'm going to pommel you” or to “pommel” someone comes from the medieval ages. The pommel is the part of a sword located opposite the blade on the end of the swords grip. The purpose of the pommel is to counter weight and balance the sword for the wielder. The type of pommel installed on a sword can directly influence every aspect of the swords handling. During a battle if you wanted to non-lethally take down an opponent, A pommel strike was much kinder than the other end of your sword.
