Additional information

With the increasing sturdiness of plate armor, the sword became less and less effective against a fully armored knight. Hammers, axes and maces soon became the weapon of choice for hand-to-hand combat of the mounted knight. The war hammer quickly evolved and became one of the premier weapons. Generally it was lighter and faster than the mace and this example is no exception.

The English Warhammer is based on an original dating from about 1530 and features a carbon steel head secured to a hardwood shaft with a leather wrapped grip and a steel end cap.

    Fast lil hammer…. You don’t need bulk when you have speed. This little hammer, that I got second hand, is an awesome weapon for its size. Very quick and responsive. Packs a wallop on some armor. They could have used better wood, but the handle COULD be replaced if it were to break. I doubt that will happen unless you’re using it on a construction/demolition site to bust concrete…..McM

    Good steel, lousy wood. Just for kicks, swung this a few times to break up some ice on my roof. Not very hard obviously. Handle disintegrated. Big rotten knot in the middle of the wood.

    Order this and really impressed with it. I have a collection of 5 war hammers now and this is by far my favorite. I have not tried to beat on anything like a brick with it, but against soft targets the handle my warhammer is doing fine. Light and fast, but heavy enough to do some damage. For the price, the best warhammer you can get IMHO
