Original: 15th century Eastern Europe

This was a common sidearm for a 15th century knight or man-at-arms. The spikes concentrate the force of the blow upon a small surface area, while the solid steel head carries enough momentum to deliver a severe crushing impact. Even with the excellent plate armour of the time, this weapon could crush, dent, and maim the best protected warriors. The relatively small head allows for a lighter weapon, permitting quick repeated strikes.

This replica features a cast tool steel head and a tubular steel shaft capped with a decorative finial. The owner has "browned" the weapon for protection of the metal. It also provides a rustic, aged effect aesthetically.
