Overview


Popular in medieval Europe, a bec de corbin (French for crow’s beak) was simply another name for a poleaxe. This shortened version consists of a modified hammer’s head and spike mounted atop a wooden pole. The hammer face balanced the beak and was often blunt instead of the multi-pronged Lucerne design, and the beak tended to be stout, a much better design for tearing armor and used for dismounting riders.

This impressive piece measures a full 56" in overall length. Detailed pierce-work, a strong hand guard and period details make this piece as beautiful as it is deadly. All hand forged by the master armorers of Windlass Steelcrafts.

Key Measurements:

  • Overall: 56"
  • Hammer to Rear Spike: 12" long, 4" wide
  • Top Spike: 7-3/4"
  • Wt: 6 lbs/8 oz

By far my favorite purchase yet from this site! It is sturdy, well made, and as beautiful as it is deadly looking!It came with no blemishes or defects of any kind. I did have to wait almost 2 months because it was on back order but when it finally came it was WELL WORTH the wait. Absolutely love this thing!

16th Century German Mace

By the 15th Century, armor had become so well developed that it was almost impervious to a sword cut and even a thrust. This heavy German mace, which evolved from man's oldest weapon, the club, could make short work of armor. With a few full sound blows the best of plate would be so damaged that the wearer's movement would be greatly impaired, quickly leading to defeat. This excellent example has 8 flanges and is made from steel which has a rust-protective coating in black to mimic the color of the original. The bottom of the shaft is wrapped in black leather for an improved grip. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®.

Bar Mace

The remains of a mace of this type were found in the River Thames, but they were in use all across Europe. Little finesse was needed for this brutal mace, and a warrior strong enough to wield it could crush helms and break swords with the heavy blows it could deliver. Made from four bars of steel with a wood and leather grip and a large steel pommel to help balance it, this is indeed an awesome weapon. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®. $5.00 additional Shipping & Handling charge with item.
