This weapon may look small and simple, but it is about as dangerous as a lance or sword! The soldier who was using a hammer like this would not have had to think long about how to place a cut at the weak point in plate armor. One or two well-aimed blows and the problem was solved. Beating on a knight's plate harness often enough or at exactly the right place can prevent him from breathing or crush him to death. Knights despised war hammers as not being chivalrous, but they did not disappear from battlefields until firearms were in widespread use.

 

Our surprisingly lightweight medieval war hammer is a replica of an original from the 15th century. The flat hammer on one side and long, pointed spike on the other mean this hammer is equal to any situation. The lower part of the hardwood shaft is wrapped with black leather that is offset with mahogany leather ties.
