This medieval Fiore War Hammer is from Windlass Steelcrafts BattleCry collection. Designed specifically to be used, this functional medieval hammer is made from 1065 high carbon steel with a darkened, battle-hardened finish, tempered to a low 50's RC. This has gone through rigorous testing....the hands-on nature of the manufacturing by master smiths makes this line unique. Includes a certificate of authenticity signed by each smith involved in the forging of this historically accurate war hammer.
This type of medieval weaponry was designed to open “tin cans” making it a feared and respected armament for and against the fully armoured knight. Loaded with offensive capabilities from the large four pronged hammer head to the incredibly strong metal piercing spike this piece can deliver a very heavy forced blow. With the leverage gained from the handle length , the force of a single blow could injure a knight or limit his abilities to defend himself. By using the hammer to strategically dent and bend the armour you could impair your opponents ability to bend an arm or limit rotation at the shoulder, elbow, knee etc. This type of warhammer didn't only pack a devastating swing, it could also deliver a piercing thrust with the large spike extending from the hammer head.
This hammer is a tribute to Fiore dei Liberi a 14th Century Knight and Master swordsman credited for writing “Fior di Battaglia, Flos Duellatorum “ or Flowers of Battle which is the oldest surviving fencing manual. The work from this Italian master is one of the main sources of material making up today's modern Western Martial Arts systems and a valuable insight into how knights trained. Fiore covered everything from open handed grappling, spear, polearm, dagger and of course the sword. This piece is an excellent addition to any medieval armaments collection.
