A beautiful war hammer by Windlass Steelcraft based on medieval knight weapons. 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 a knight harnass. The hammer could dent the armor, and the crow's beak could punch holes in a knight's armor. The warhammer was the weapon of the elite. Only cavalry on horseback could afford this weapon to destroy armor parts of the opponent on horseback. 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 wooden shaft with nails. It has a long beak and long hammer. A great melee weapon for the medieval weapon collector. Perfect for reenactment battles and medieval reenactment.
