Circa 1350

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 langets. Brass tacks provide a more secure grip. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®.

    Great little war hammer. My only aversion is to the grip portion of the handle, which is a bit wide and uncomfortable. However, I would take this into battle in an instant. The claw like hammer is perfect for maximizing impact pressure points and the spike is nicely crafted to pierce armor, skulls, or anything else you might decide to use it on.

    I got this for my husband for Christmas. He LOVES it! We beat up a really durable box like I was cutting through butter. Today he picked up one of the large beef knuckle bones that we got for the dogs and brought it outside to see how the war hammer would work on it. Completely blown to bits with one hit! This was unbelievable! Too much fun! And amazingly powerful.
