This is my third Warhammer from Museums Replicas Limited (yes, I have a thing form hammers and axes) and I am very happy with it as well. First, it is small, light weight, with a handle long enough to use one or two handed. Second, it is solid, built tough to withstand the rigors of battle. Being a lighter weight warhammer doesn't make this thing any less powerful, it is capable of terrible, smashing blows at incredible speeds! And the backspike is terrible, sharp and pointy, like an ice pick! I would never want to get hit by this thing, not by any part of it! This thing really is small but mighty.
