I think you need glasses, the decoration on the halberd before the blade is curved and it is really just before the blade.
The spear has a decoration too but it is not curved and the decoration is on the shaft. (Go see the images in my previous post, you'll see)
And, anyway, a spear has a pointed head, that's why it's called a spear.
It's simple really : Pointed head --> Spear, Blade --> Halberd.
And he was a god of war, not a god of hunt, the spear is a weapon that was originally designed for hunting, the halberd, though, is a weapon designed for war.
(I could explain why but a research on the internet would surely be better.)
I think Andre is the God Of War.
He is the Blacksmith who has the most upgrade paths and the only one who has upgrade paths tied to the ideals of the God Of War (Regular, Raw, Divine, Occult), he has also a unique physical appearance :
The giant blacksmith looks like any giant, Vamos is a skeleton (ok he don't look the same as the others and holds the royal helm and that's why he is important, but not the god of war), Rickert looks like any sorcerer but Andre even if he seems to be human is taller and larger than any NPC, he also have a beard and a unique haircut, and his hair and beard are white, the only other NPC who has a white beard and hair is Gwyn.
His hammer is also the most "common", it's a simple iron hammer with no magic power but he is able to forge very powerful weapons.
"But the old God of War still watches closely over his warriors"
(And, the "old" really means "old" I think, he lost his Deity status after all.)
Solaire of astora, warrior of the sun.
Andre of Astora.
Do I need to explain the link ?
Back to his physical appearance :
He has 2 scars similar to the one we have on the chest, when you kill him he doesn't vanish, his corpse lies on the ground, just like the 2 undead merchants but he doesn't seem to be hollow and doesn't have red eyes (I checked with binoculars after killing him, so I'm sure), his eyes are those of a human.
And, the most important : He has particular moves and does incredibly high damage with his bare fists.
