Lucern war hammer

The Lucern war hammer is a type of polearm which was popular in Switzerland during the 15th to 17th centuries. The name comes from a discovery of many of these weapons in Lucerne, Switzerland. The 'hammer' was actually a three- to four-pronged head mounted atop a 2m-long (7 foot) pole. It bore a long spike on its reverse, and an even longer spike extending from the very top. It proved effective at puncturing or smashing armor, and much like a man catcher was used for dismounting riders.

The original pole arms often reached lengths of more than two meters. That is more than is offered here because of transportation limit (6' - 5"). We can supply this weapon replica taken apart with a longer pole. In that case, you will have to put the parts together by your own. You wilI usually have to insert iron pins (included in delivery) in the pre-drilled holes and hammer them flat at the end, whereby the parts get riveted together.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

What is the difference between industrially rolled and hand-forged blade?

In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
