A beautiful medieval war hammer by Windlass Steelcraft based on historical weapons from 1430 used in England. The war hammer is a melee weapon from the late Middle Ages. The armor of knights on horseback was constantly improved during the Middle Ages, so that it was strong enough against swords and other medieval weapons. The war hammer is designed to pierce armor and inflict major damage on armor parts. The war hammer was the weapon of the elite. Only cavalry on horseback could afford this weapon to destroy armor parts of the opponent. It is therefore a close combat melee weapon. The war hammer was light and fast, which was an improvement over the mace. This war hammer has a leather grip and a wooden shaft. A great melee weapon for the collector of weapons from the Middle Ages. Perfect for reenactment battles and medieval reenactment.

Prevent rust and corrosion by oiling your weapons regularly. Remove rust easily with black sandpaper. Remove burrs with a whetstone. Make sure you have removed all burrs before using a battle-ready weapon, as they can cause wounds.
Maintenance & care
Just as with weaponry, you can care for your shoes and leatherware by applying a little Ballistol after cleaning. This prevents the leather from drying out.
