Circa 1430
With the increasing sturdiness of plate armor, the sword became less and less effective against a fully armored knight. Hammers, axes and maces soon became the weapon of choice for hand-to-hand combat of the mounted knight. The war hammer quickly evolved and became one of the premier weapons. Generally it was lighter and faster than the mace. Often it was made somewhat longer, so that the reach could be extended, but it could be shortened as well if need be. We ran across this in a private collection and fell in love with it. Light, fast and deadly. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.
  • Overall: 25-1/4"
  • Width: head to spike 6-1/2"
  • Wt: 1-3/4 lbs

English War Hammer
Excellent addition to my medieval collection. Well shaped head & spike, proportioned shaft, inlaid langets, and metal endcap all makes it just right for me. MR again scores another 5 from me. Thanks folks.

Awesome War Hammer
I just received this war hammer after purchasing it from the deal of the day.  It arrived quickly and well packed.  This is an awesome weapon.  Beautiful in appearance and formidable as a weapon.  The spiked end is very sharp and would do serious damage if put to use.  Balance is great.  Wonderful feel.  The workmanship is outstanding.  Delighted with this purchase.

Windlass Steelcrafts and Museum Replicas have outdone themselves again! This Warhammer has perfect balance and weight as well as a deadly spike that excels at penetration on sheet metal, wood and everything else I have tested it against, without leaving a mark on the head.
