War Hammers

War Hammers were a development of the late thirteenth century created specifically to deal with heavy plate style armour. The heavy war hammer head could crush the strongest helmet or suit of plate armor with just a few blows and the back spike could rip through helm and plate like a modern can opener. In battle, the war hammer side was usually employed first to knock down and stun an enemy. Once he was on the ground, helpless, the war hammer was reversed and the back spike was used to punch a hole through the helmet and deliver the coup de grace. We carry German war hammers, English war hammers and foot soldiers war hammers that are full functional.
