Trident

A trident ( /ˈtraɪdənt/), also called a trishula or leister or gig, is a three-pronged spear. It is used for spear fishing and was also a military weapon. Tridents are featured widely in mythical, historical and modern culture. The Greco-Roman sea god Poseidon or Neptune and the major Hindu god, Shiva the Destroyer are classically depicted bearing a trident.

Tridents can be distinguished from pitchforks in that the latter is an agricultural tool with two to six tines (also called prongs) which are shaped in such a way that they can be used to lift and pitch (throw) loose material.
