This Fisted War Hammer design began popping up around Europe in the 15th century and was not only decorative but was a decisive answer to the heavy plate armor appearing on the battlefield.
Made by Windlass Steelcrafts, this version has an all-steel head with both a flat-headed hammer and a deadly 5” spike. The sturdy shaft is made of rustic-looking American Hickory and has been stained in a dark brown. The foot has a steel cup and rings for hanging this from a saddle or attaching a wrist strap. All of the metal parts have a battle-worn antique finish.

On the fence with this one
The spike is steel. The fist however is cast aluminum. My big issue is one of the spikes around the fist has been halfway cut through with a grinding disc. Or a thicker blade of some kind. Disappointing

A rare replica
There are not many replicas of this weapon on the market. Quite rare. I was glad to be able to find one. This replica is very well made. the head seems made of an alloy of cast metals and not of forged steel. I wouldn't risk hitting anything with it. Otherwise it is a very nice piece for display. The patterns on the handle are very original and it's still a pretty impressive weapon when you have it in your hands.

Unique and heft
I don't know if this hammer is a limited run or not, But I would definitely recommend this unit here. The handle feels and looks amazing with the rough hewn texture.  
The weight of the cast fist makes the swing effortless.

Awesome piece with one exception...
The piece itself is awesome looks incredible finish looks great wood looks and feels good. knocking off a star or 2 because the first half inch of the tip of the "blade" was bent... not a big deal since it's only a decoration for me I bent it perfectly straight with a hammer but not sure how well this would hold up for any sort of use? A little disappointing to have to do but I would buy it again for sure!

Lower Quality Than Advertised
Beefy, but in the palm section below the fingers a weld has been added that greatly reduces the detail to a crude imitation of advertised images.

Our fisted War Hammer is not meant to have a weld below the fingers, and all our other pieces in stock do not have such a weld. Our Customer Service will reach out to you and have this discrepancy addressed.

Even better in person. Massive piece. Looks just like the pictures & is high quality.
