Blunt Weaponry

These versatile close combat weapons were capable of inflicting significant injury to an armored knight. They relied on the user’s strength and weight of the weapon to deliver blunt force trauma to their target.

Maces were crucial in the fight against an armored knight. Cheap to make and simple to use, they were used as a close contact weapon both on foot and horseback. Capable of delivering deadly blows, these bludgeoning weapons were primarily used by foot soldiers.

War hammers were mostly used in the late Middle Ages, they were used against mounted opponents or used in close combat, depending on the length of the handle. The spiked end of a hammer could pierce armor as well as be used to grab the reins of the horse.

Museum Replicas offers a great selection of these versatile weapons of choice used in the hand-to-hand combat of the mounted knight.

Review of: German Mace

Arrived quickly and was well packaged.  The mace itself seems solid, the welds are visible but not an eyesore.  I'm planning on doing aa leather wrap over the spiral wire wrap.  It's pretty but rough on the hands unless you're wearing gloves.  As far as durability goes, I haven't crushed my enemies before me yet nor heard the lamentations of their women.  At least there's something to look forward too !

Review of: German Mace

I was a little disappointed with this one it’s much choppyer looking than in the picture  definitely wasn’t a clean weld I thought it would fall apart but I tested it out on a tree fairly hard and it held up  the other disappointment which is just a personal taste is that it’s crazy light  but it seems functional and I wish it was maybe $20 -40 dollars cheaper I’d say it’s worth it but if your a first time. Mace buyer it’s a good get

Review of: German Mace

Great mace - very impressive sitting on the shelf.  Feels reasonably sturdy, although I'm sure you'd damage it smashing it into concrete or doing a Forged in Fire remake.  They did a good job of cutting the plates which went into the macehead, although the welding could have been better.  Good job!

Review of: German Mace

This mace is a beautiful piece that fully met my expectations.  A truly great display item for one's collection.  I can understand why knights in armor could have feared such a weapon.

If you are looking for a hammer that will bring the hurt ... this is the one to get. The head on this thing is amazing. Everything is right and tight. Get one!

Review of: German Mace

I had been looking at this piece for a while and finally picked it up. It surpassed all my expectations. What an impressive mace! The pictures do not do it justice. The head on this seems much more intimidating in person. Very happy with this one.

Review of: Heavy War Hammer

I own another War Hammer from (brand x). And while still a fine hammer, not to brag, I am a larger warrior at 5' 8, 200 pounds of muscle, who trains regularly. So when "Heavy" Warhammer arrived I was not disappointed !!! When they say heavy they mean it !! Not too heavy as to be unwieldy in one hand, but NOT for the faint of heart. A GREAT shield/hammer combo. The etching is a very nice touch. As in all wood products it may shrink/swell a tiny bit, which I DID notice here in Florida, but nothing to worry about and barely noticeable. My only complaint is the lack of some sort of buttcap. But that's an easy fix. Love this Hammer, quickly became my favorite 👍

Review of: Heavy War Hammer

The War Hammer was developed to overcome surface hardened steel of wrought iron armors of the late medieval battlefields during the 14th and 15th centuries. Sword points would not penetrate the armor.  With the War Hammer, you knock down the foe with full force of the hammer end and then deliver the final blow with the spiked end to the thinner  parts of the armor. Nasty weapon indeed. This War Hammer is beautiful. Excellent steel, design and workmanship. The langets fasten the head to the handle with  brass screws and the langets also protect both sides down the handle for 12.5 inches. Balances well with one or two hands. Just the right size. This is a keeper at a good price. Love it!!!!

Review of: Heavy War Hammer

*Drool*... ugh.. sooooo awesome. It arrived less than a week after ordering (in flawless condition), and I promptly destroyed some pallets with a vengeance. The spike actually snapped a treated 4x4 in half with one good swing! I swear to god it was the coolest thing ever. Perfect zombie killer -- you could puncture an engine block with this thing. The only downside is that the handle on it is much lighter (unfinished) than in the picture, but some tongue oil will fix that right up. Can't wait til the wife leaves again so I can find more useless crap to destroy. Well done windlass!
