Found a warhammer today on Icefalcon Armoury's website and was wondering if anyone has any experience with this warhammer. Also I am curious about its historical accuracy as I am currently looking for a good inexpensive warhammer.

I know that Andre (Icefalcon) is currently sold out. They must have flown off the shelves as they are a great bargain for the dollar. Historically speaking, the langets seem a little weird (short?) to me but I am no expert. I would recommend picking one up when back in stock and re-hafting it similar to Sean Flynt's DIY Pollaxe/Streithammer Project.

Drop Andre a line and ask him when he might get a shipment in. I've had several successful transactions with Icefalcon and highly recommend him for service, promptness of replys, quality of product and just an all around great guy to talk with. Happy

Thanks, I read Sean Flynt's DIY Pollaxe/Streithammer Project and wanted the windlass new warhammer but couldn't find it anywhere and then i found this one and its looks like a good deal and if I can get my hands on it I might rehaft it like Sean Flint's his is beautiful. I'll be sure to drop Andre a line.

Some of the " cheap " hammers seem to use decent steel, from what I have read here on this site before, but the wood afts can be of soft wood so you may need to replace the handle if you plan to use it.

The handles may be fine but just don't assume that they are. Wink

Paying a bit more is sometimes worth it for quality made hammers or other weapons like the A&A version.

The cheap ones may be good enough and a good deal if you want to do a DIY project.

You can easily give up your freedom. You have to fight hard to get it back!

The langets on the famed Wallace Collection hammer (replicated by A&A) has langets around that length, though Ice Falcon's appear narrower.

Chad, you are absolutely correct. The Arms & Armor replica (#005) is a dead ringer for the Wallace Collection piece (A975), less the butt plate which I'm sure they would replicate as well if asked.

If you're not learning, you're dead! Happy
