Though the sword is the archetypal weapon of the knightly class, many of them began to give the weapon a secondary role; the sword was ill-equipped to deal with plate armor. Although variations would develop to combat armor, many warriors instead turned to war hammers. For if his opponents armor had developed to the point where puncturing it was difficult, why not then just batter him with concussive weapons? The war hammer, had more than enough kinetic power, even in a single-handed variant, to defeat armor-clad men. Many War Hammers, such as this example, had a long pick for the explicit purpose of puncturing like a driven spike into armor. Unlike earlier swords which would flex with impact and fail to deliver enough energy for a puncture of plate armor, the solid, unyielding spike had more than enough power to break through the toughest of armor and helmets with a solid hit.

This War Hammer by Cold Steel has a drop forged head of blackened 1055 High Carbon steel. It comes with a haft of Hickory wood. Assembly for this item is required to attach the head and its langets to the shaft. Instructions and components necessary are included.

Please Note: This Item comes unassembled. Components and Assembly Instructions are Included.
