Original Medieval Form Georgian Or Victorian Era Fighting Axe / War Hammer With Original Long Leather Saddle Hanger / Wrist Strap. Sn 13693 - 13693

This excellent unusual Medieval Form Fighting Axe / War hammer was most likely made in the Georgian or Victorian Era. Similar examples of the original Medieval War Hammers are illustrated on page 278 of the book ‘A Glossary Of The Construction, Decoration & Use Of Arms & Armour’ by Stone. This is not a decorative replica of a Medieval War hammer but was definitely made for use. The hard wood shaft has hand tooled decoration and a pierced brass ball end. The axe measures 6” from the broadest part of the cutting edge to the pointed end of the armour / helmet piercing Hammer head. The sharpened cutting edge of the axe head measures 2 ¼” from tip to tip and the underside of the blade has a notch most likely used to rip open the armour of a fallen enemy (similar to how a can opener operates). The heavy octagonal armour piercing hammer is 2 ½” length and has a copper ring towards the end section and conical steel striking point. The axe head is attached to the shaft by 2 long riveted steel tangs. The overall length of the axe is 13 ¾”. The axe is complete with its original unusual leather strap configuration with 2 leather straps combined with buckles (25” overall length) and decorative 4 pointed metal plate star mount (one tip of the star is absent). The strap is attached to a leather ring which is riveted to the shaft. The strap can be configured to form a wrist loop and in its longer form, most likely for hanging from a saddle. The axe with straps attached weighs a hefty 1lb 15 ozs. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 13693
