Instead of going to bed like I should, I was just wandering through Kult of Athena's website contemplating the idea of buying a cheap single hand warhammer and mounting it as a poleaxe, with langets and some spikes. I had a particular liking for Windlass's 17th Century Warhammer here: http://www.kultofathena.com/product.asp?item=...War+Hammer

Of course, I couldn't recall any actual examples that look like that, so I thought I'd look through myArmoury.com's Albums section. (Yes, there is more to this place than the forums. Wink ) Then I thought Eh, there isn't going to be anything like that... But I'll look anyway, it's good for me.

Okey-doke, typical poleaxe with spikes, mace, warhammer... Well, what have we here? Hello beautiful. You look like the love-child of a poleaxe and halberd: http://www.myArmoury.com/albums/photo/2017.html


Seriously, that's what it looks like. Looks like a halberd with a poleaxe's beak and hammer-head.

Does anyone have any information on this piece? The entry is a little vague, all it says is the picture is from Hermann Historica. It seems a little unique and unique is frequently interesting. I'm trying to remember if I've ever seen anything similar...

"Tears are for the craven, prayers are for the clown.
Halters for the silly neck that cannot keep a crown.
As my loss is grievous, so my hope is small.
For Iron, Cold Iron, must be master of men all..."
-Cold Iron, Rudyard Kipling

You probably want to do a search on "Lucerne hammer". It's made differently from a war hammer/bec de corbin, but the result is equally useful.
