A Late Medieval Steel War Hammer is purpose built for crushing and rending asunder the armor of even the most heavily defended of foes; its broad striking head brings powerful concussive blows upon a target and its crows beak pick can capably smash into and puncture into armor. This replica has a head of carbon steel which is robustly peened and mounted onto a shaft of solid steel which is reinforced and stiffened with its hexagonal form. Two rondels protect the hand and couch it into a secure position.
One-handed, all-steel war hammers such as this were popular with medieval armored cavalrymen. Not merely for the horseman however, these hammers can pair well with a shield for a powerful fighting combination.
