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.Read more ›
Here is my own and my thoughts.
The previous 3 days I have been tossing around how to make it "mine". I had many ideas on how to apply the hardware or not use it at all. I made notes for each one and compared them to the pros and cons. I knew without a doubt I wanted to lightly stain the handle and strip the paint off the head. I started the handle first with a sanding and then added some black boot polish. After that came a light coat of tru oil. while that set in I started the paint stripping of the hammer head. That came off easy enough.
I was still tossing around ideas. Long story short, I decided to keep it as one may have when making a weapon. Nothing fancy but functional. I did add some of the vinegar, peroxide, and salt, which brought out a nice patina.
Look at the pics.
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.
Usually Cold Steel relies on one little allen screw in the head to secure the head to the handle (the handles are tapered so the heads can't fly off, but they can slide down, which is what the screw is supposed to prevent...I modify the 'hawks when I get them and don't use the little screw b/c ultimately it's not really necessary as the heads stay up on their own pretty well). So, when looking at pics of the War Hammer, I assumed all the black material around the head was one piece, and that the longer pieces on the sides would screw in and REALLY hold the head up there. Well, I was partially right. The longer side pieces DO have to get screwed in...but they're not part of the head, they're independent pieces. Disappointing, but not the end of the world. Until I tried putting them on.Read more ›

I know guns are the bee's knee's, but if you use this for home defense, look out. This thing is as dangerous as any gun. Especially in closed, dark quarters. Read morePublished 14 months ago by Ryan B.
