The proliferation of plate armor across Medieval Europe was shadowed by the development of crushing weapons like this war hammer. Since swords were virtually useless against plate armor, mounted knights used short hammers, axes and maces to defeat an opponent's improved protection. This beautiful, impressive weapon is replicated from an example in the German National Museum in Nuremberg. Steel head is secured to the hardwood shaft with steel langlets. Brass tacks provide a more secure grip. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts. Overall-21 1/2" . Head-1" X 5" . Wt.-2 lbs.

"Solid, look and feel good. Nice addition to any middle-age weapon collection." -Jacques (5/5)
"Photos donít do this justice; it must be experienced to be truly appreciated. Considering the quality of the piece this was a fantastic buy & worth the lengthy wait (abo. 6 mo.)! Light enough to be wielded with one hand but with enough heft to do serious damage. The back-spike has terrifying potential to breach virtually anything in itís path, while the prongs/teeth on the front of the hammer amplify the crushing potential as the kinetic energy is concentrated over four small points. Put simply this is a solid, well built, beautify understated weapon that will command respectÖor else!!!" -Quintin (5/5)
Reliks Response - sorry for the wait, they are currently no longer on backorder. (at the time of this post)
"It's solid, has a good weight to it, and I like the look of the spike. This is a great deal. The only drawback might be that the handle could be a tiny bit longer." -Lauren (4/5)
