Details

The advanced development of cleaving weapons went hand in hand with the spread of plate armor. Hammers, axes, and maces were easy to produce, frightfully easy to use, and above all, were completely deadly. They did not even have to split or cleave enemy armor – they only needed to leave a few deep dents to immobilize their opponents. With smashed chests and unable to get out of their armor, many knights died on the battlefield from suffocation.

 

A Renaissance war hammer like this one would have been used into the 17th century, even though they were not very popular with knights in armor. The hammer has a compact, powerful head and a slightly curved spike for cleaving even the highest quality metal. The handle is made of solid hardwood.
