By the mid 1400's armor had developed to the point that it was almost impervious to single handed swords, so in order to defeat the the warrior one had to first defeat the harness - and that's when good solid war hammers became popular. With stout blows armor could be damaged and crushed, sorely affecting movement and defense. This hammer has a tempered steel coronel style hammer head, side spikes, top spike, armor piercing bec-de-corbin back spike, protective langets, a steel buttcap, and a firm studded grip. This is a real knight breaker!
