The Combat Options tab, where the weapon's type can be found.

Below is a list of weapon types categorised by their Combat Options, which can be found in game at the bottom of the tab. Weapons listed in each section may not necessarily follow a standard set of combat options that are used in similar weapon types. For example, the 3rd age longsword uses the combat options of a two-handed sword rather than the combat options of a slashing sword.
