As armour on the battlefield became more and more reinforced with plate, impact weapons like the axe became the weapons of choice. The curved blade of the axe delivered crushing blows, whereas the spike could easily puncture armor. Either way, the result would be the same-armour or not. Craig Johnson of Arms & Armor told me of how he easily penetrated a "bulletproof" steel door with the spike of this axe. This is truly a weapon that means business.

This reproduction is of 6150 steel with a black leather grip. The shaft of the axe is hexagonal. The back edge of the axe head is of a "batwing" configuration. The spike is diamond-shaped.
Overall length: 24"
Weight: 3.1 pounds
Grip length: 6.625"
Head length: 8.5" x 5.25" (at widest part of axe head)

Maker: Arms & Armor of Minnesota.
