Medieval Axes, Hammers, Maces & Bows

Much of the medieval fighting was in close quarters, which made these weapons ideal. Used to crush, stab and deliver devastating blows, these instruments would inflict great injury or even death to their opponent. Museum Replicas offers an extensive line of authentic weapons made like the originals. Copied from museums and collections around the world, these weapons are a wonderful addition to any weapons library.

Review of: Fiore War Hammer

My first purchase from the Battlecry line and it exceeded all expectations! Outstanding. Solid. Massive. Love the finish!

Interesting the earlier comment about not liking the square handle. I think it's a more authentic look, and when wielding in battle chances are good that fighters wore gauntlets or at very least gloves.

Review of: Orleans Battle Axe

MR's axe offerings have always been more miss than hit with me. Most look beautiful in pictures but show up unsharpened without a realistic way to get a true edge on one.

Not so with the Orleans Battle Axe, complete with its top spike and rear spike.

I would like to see more of their axes done in this manner...double bladed battle axes, the Dragon Hunter axe, etc.

They finally got it right!

Review of: Medieval Horseman's Axe

Maybe not great, but good at this price. Really, about the only thing I don't like about it is that it's a little plain. I'm thinking I may just need to 'antique' mine a little.

Materials seem good, very solid well-fitted secure handle. I'll use mine for re-enactment so I'll leave the factory edge. I doubt these were intended for chopping wood, though they will probably withstand light use.

I was fascinated by the design and didn't have anything like it in my collection (I have mostly rugged looking GDFB, Hanwei, a couple of Cold Steel). I was interested to find lots of historical references to this style of axe though, including this one on wikipedia for 'Battle Axes': Robert the Bruce, King of Scotland, used an axe to defeat Henry de Bohun in single combat at the start of theBattle of Bannockburn in 1314. Given that Bruce was wielding the axe on horseback, it is likely that it was a one handed horseman's axe. They enjoyed a sustained revival among heavily armored equestrian combatants in the 15th century.

Review of: Fiore War Hammer

This Warhammer means serious business. Totally solid, nothing loose, like the "Battlecry" look. Long enough to knock a rider off his horse and a RAZOR sharp spike for finishing the job. 500 years ago I would have felt totally confident bringing this to a real battlefield.

Review of: Bar Mace

When this came, I was surprised how heavy and solid this thing felt. Certainly, with this, a strong-armed individual can easy put down a horde of zombies medieval-style! Very solid construction; thick, solid leather wrapping. Good work, Windlass!

Review of: English War Hammer

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.

Awesome axe, heavy. Handel is very large so unless you have giant hands you will need both to hold this beast.
