Overview


Circa 1400
By the mid 1400s armor had developed to the point that it was almost impervious to a sword blow. That’s when the knight or man-at-arms would reach for a good solid war hammer. With sound blows armor could be damaged and crushed, sorely affecting movement and the ability to defend one's self.

This hammer has a large end spike as well as small spikes on the sides. The back spike is thick and able to punch through armor. The head is attached with steel langets to the hardwood shaft which is also studded for a secure grip. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts

Key Measurements:

  • Overall: 26-1/2"

Excellent quality, with a very weighty head piece. Wood handle is a little lighter than the picture, but still looks great.

Pole Axe

We ran across this pole axe in a private collection and immediately decided we needed to replicate it. With a long history of use, the pole axe was very popular in the lists, with the winner being decided by the number of blows fairly struck. It was also quite popular for use on the field of battle. With a good sharp point it could be used as a short spear, the back or spike could be used to pierce armor, and the axe head itself was quite lethal. Superb copy, with a high carbon blade and langets to protect the shaft. A magnificent example of a pole arm.

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.

Archer's Axe

Archers always carried an in-close fighting sidearm, and an axe like this one was a perfect choice as both a good worker and a weapon. The flat poll was good for hammering in stakes that were often used in the defensive line, and then the blade could be used to sharpen them. This is a basic European pattern that was carried and used by infantry as well as mounted warriors as its design is just so practical for all kinds of uses in the field as well as war. Tempered steel head on a good hardwood shaft. Add this highly functional piece of history to your collection.
