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 hickory shaft which is also studded for a secure grip. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.

  • Overall: 26-1/2"
  • Head: 1-1/4" x 5"
  • Wt: 2 lbs/4 oz

Great buy
The hammer was great over all, and feels really nice in the hand to especially the handle, it's real smooth, the only criticism I have is that there is a slight space between the langet and the wooden shaft and the shape of the hammer head is not as refind as shown in the picture (by that I mean the concave parts of the hammer head is a lot more shallow than shown in picture so it seems a lot more flat).
Also side note I don't know if it's just me but my hammer does have some small amount of seemingly dent or tiny tiny chipping damage on the nail part and a ever so slight amount of rust on the underside of the hammer and beak. I did get the hammer shipped to me real quick even with the cheap shipping option, so I'm not sure if it's just because it's an item in storge that has been sitting there for a long while and caused a slight rust built up and it got slightly damaged during the pacage and shipping process or what, but it is something MRL can look into in the future to make sure all product comes as shiny and smooth as possible.
But again at this price range it is an amazing purchase, highly recommented.

Almost
I like it it’s a little lighter than I’d like but that’s just personal preference and there are some minor defects on it but otherwise a solid piece do I think it’s worth full price no it’s worth maybe $ 100 to me but if you like it and have the cash not a bad buy

Happy with!!
My first war hammer. Weight and balance are excellent. Fit and finish are also excellent. Spikes on top and sides are not sharp but are "pointy" enough that you feel them even when/if you accidently brush against them so be careful. Langets solidly attached to head with no visible welds and extend halfway down the handle on two sides and help index the hammer when held. Studs on lower half of handle also help maintain your grip. If I "had" to come up with a negative it would be the handle length. If the handle was about 2 inches longer a  two handed grip would feel perfectly natural (for me). As is, a two handed grip is comfortable but feels slightly tight as I have long arms. Extremely happy with my first war hammer.

Beautiful Basher!
After getting the brass skull mace long ago, I recently decided to get myself a war hammer as an addition to my collection and chose this one. Finely constructed and definitely of very sturdy manufacture, it is an excellent piece for any collection. Certainly well worth obtaining one of these, you will NOT be disappointed!!!

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