Product Description

Weighing a little over 2 1/2" lbs., our War Hammer is highly maneuverable and can be easily wielded with one or both hands. The head is drop forged out of 5150 steel and differentially heat treated . This means the point of the spike and enormous hammer face (11/2" x 11/2") are fully hardened so they can pierce and crush tough materials without failing while the rest of the hammer is left soft to absorb the shock of heavy blows. The handle of our War Hammer has been designed to be equally tough. Made of straight grain American Hickory and measuring 30" long it provides tremendous leverage so enormously powerful blows may be struck. To protect the handle from assault by an opponent armed with an edged weapon we have included a pair of sturdy steel langets which can be attached below the head with the screws provided. (Some assembly is required. Instructions are included).

Turns out that it actually is a solid piece.

I'm currently stripping the head and filing down the rough edges in the eye so i can mount it without overly damaging the haft.

So, I ordered this even after reading the reviews about how hard it was to install the langettes and how awful it was that the whole thing came in pieces and all that. Scroll through these reviews, you'll see what I mean. Well, when mine came in the mail, sure enough, it was some assembly required, if by that you mean putting the head on the handle, turning bolt to hold it in place with an alan wrench (you might know it as that unpronounceable tool Ikea uses on everything), and--horror of horrors!--pre-drilling holes for screws. Seriously, it takes all of twenty minutes for full assembly, isn't in the least bit hard if you have any experience using tools at all, and the only complaint I've got is that the screws themselves are a little weak (I twisted the head off of one tightening it; be careful and know your own strength). Sure, they don't sit flush, either, but what are you doing swinging this beast around without gloves on? Come on, guys. Stop whining. You paid $40 for a weapon that kills knights.

In terms of actual satisfaction with the hammer, man, I love this beast. The demo video doesn't do it justice at all. The hammer head is a bludgeoning honey badger. It don't care. Totally destroyed a wooden shield I had spare for testing, and made short work of my old helmet--plus some fruit, some milk jugs full of water, and whatever else I had that looked like it needed smashing. The real beauty of this little monster is the spike, though. Man, it's a can opener. Shields, plate, chain, leather, this sucker just destroys whatever you put to it, with no noticeable wear. It's well made for what it does, to be sure. The shape of the spike is great, too, because unlike other spiked hammers I've tested and used, it doesn't stick quite as badly once it's in.

Unlike other war hammers that say "battle ready" this one actually performs. I've got one hanging on the wall for home defense.

Well got my war hammer in a few months ago but held off on the review till I had the chance to wack some things. If you've seen the demo video from cold steel you allready know what this thing can do so I'll try and keep the nerding out about how it demolishes and crushes all before you to a minimum. Instead there is a little heads up, they dont mention this but you have to put it together, a rubber mallet is needed to fully set the head (beat it down on the handel so its tight) and a drill is needed to pre drill the screw holes in order to attach the metal sides. Very easy to do though as long as you have the tools. Its very well balanced and swinging it down on something it surprisingly easy. Im certain a 96 pound highschool girl could kill you with this thing if she got you in the head. If your not midget the hammer can easily smash ribs, skulls and bones. The spike on the back is super sharp and tough making short work everything I can find to smash.

It may not be as sexy as a cold steel longsword or Katanna but for a man on a budget,(im a college student) Its the best melee weapon I've ever seen.

Great warhammer. I can't recommend this thing enough. It busts up cinder blocks like a sledgehammer and I can't imagine anything that could stop that wicked spike! Only gave it four star because the hickory handle is a bit splintery, but you should wear gloves when using this anyway, so no biggie. You want a sturdy and fun weapon to wield look no further.

So I went back and forth about getting this hammer, finally with the price below 40 bucks I could resist no longer! After I got it out of the package and all assembled, I'd thought that I would share my feelings/findings.

First the head is smaller and more light weight then I expected, even though in the description it clearly told me how much it weighed, but after consideration I am glad it weighs what it does. From a practical view this Hammer is a weapon, not a sludge hammer. Most melee weapons need to be swung/used repeatedly. The weight of this Hammer is a perfect balance between crushing weight and repeated use weight.

Second, the length of it felt a bit shorter to me than I was expecting, again the length is clearly listed in the description, but you really need to feel it in your hands to "feel" the length. Cold Steel in one of their demo videos claims the length is designed to allow use in one hand or in both hands. Being about 6'4 I'm taller than most people and I find that this weapon feels the best to me, in both hands. It's long enough to get the leverage you need, but short enough where its easier to bring it back up for a second blow, which again speaks to its practical use(weapon). If you grip the Hammer just below the langettes this is where I feel it is the most comfortable to use one handed. The feel changes to more tactical and less barbaric allowing you to poke with the wood end, or use like a framing hammer.

Third, as you have probably already read, the hammer does require some assembly. You have to set the head on to the handle, which you just slide it down and tap with a rubber mallet. The head is held in place very securely with just being driven down on the handle, but comes with a screw that requires a small Alan wrench to tighten.
