English War Hammer

Based on a circa 1430 design. Based on an original in a private collection. The proliferation of plate armor across Medieval Europe was shadowed by the development of crushing weapons like this war hammer. Since swords were virtually useless against plate armor, mounted knights used short hammers, axes and maces to defeat an opponent's improved protection.

Hand crafted steel head is secured to the hardwood shaft with steel langets. Leather wrapped handle provide a more secure grip.

25 1/4" overall with a 6 1/2" head. Weighs around 1 pound 8 ounces.
