Cold Steel War Hammer w/ Wooden Handle
Modeled after the original medieval close combat weapon, the war hammer. Resembling a traditional hammer, this bludgeoning tool adds a new dynamic to your arsenal of weaponry in the form of close range polearms. The spike, located on the opposite side of the hammerhead, makes this tool more versatile and capable of overcoming armor and other protective layers.
