Price QualityRobI originally wanted the English Warhammer as I wanted something fairly light and nimble. It wasn't available at the time so I shifted to this full steel hammer and I've got to say I absolutely love it. It's quite long horseman style but is ok to use one handed. A miss with it could leave you fairly open when using one hand as it would take some time to reset. A solid hit would destroy anything with its well made head.
Where I feel it comes in to its own is using it with both hands. Particularly holding the handle with the weaker hand and throwing the weight with the stronger hand on the shaft. Sledgehammer style. Like this it can be used incredibly nimbly with a bit of practise. Great hammer
