My unit gives these as Farewell gifts!!! They are always a big hit
Bought this on a whim, used it in a Scottish "live steel" historical re-enactment group. Held up amazingly well to regular practice against stage-combat broadswords and lasted the run of the festival before taking sufficient damage to need to be retired. Considering I have had swords costing 3x as much last a fraction of the time, well worth the cost. Just ordered another for this year's performance!
Really great hammer and it came very quick. My only problem is the head is kinda wobbly on it. I've made many purchases from Trueswords but this is the first time I've seen a defect on any of the weapons. Not a big deal though I love Trueswords and will continue to purchase.
This war hammer is solid! No issues with mine, and as a matter of fact it seems very well made, especially at this price. Maybe the manufacturer has improved quality control, maybe people are just more likely to review an item when there are problems. Whatever the reasons, I can highly recommend this, 5 stars!
As usual, price and service at trueswords is best, bar none. I've made a dozen purchases here over the last couple of years and always come back. Whenever I've had a question I always get an immediate response.
So I must be Hercules my hammer broke almost instantly, three hits on n old stump in my yard and the handle was in pieces. The head is worthy though, I took a two foot piece of square stock and wielded them. I also tried to rivet the "lagnets" to the steel but they rattled and popped the rivets in a few hits. So as you receive the hammer it is an ornament, but with some work mine is now functional.
I purchased a pair for use in our EMAAknights curricula. Overall they are very good War Hammers. The only flaw that was apparent on arrival was that the glue that held one head on the haft was loose, causing the hammer to "rattle". This was fixed by using epoxy on the haft and riveting the head to the haft. No more rattle! Pros: Long haft Solid Steel head Buttcap spike Impressively long and dangerous looking beak. Hammer gives solid strikes and feels good in the hand (gloved or bare - but use gloves). Cons: Langets are not attacked to head. Head and langets are pinned to the haft (not riveted - BUT this can easily be corrected and I have not had an issue with the langets coming loose.) Haft is made of lighter weight wood than I had expected ,but I do not know what kind.(So far it has held up to use.) Beak is longer than most war hammers. This is not an issue for me, just be careful. I give this weapon 4 Stars because it is a decently made weapon. It performs better than I would have expected and is not just a display piece on my wall. I've personally used this in my medieval arms classes. For the price it is a steal as well as a bargain.
This was a great surprise, I had low expectations but was very happy with this product. Very heavy duty. I would use this on any intruder instead of the many guns I own.
Firstly, I'm not sure why this weapon is not categorized with the rest of the Medieval Weapons. I found it by accident. Aside from that, this is an excellent product! I used the spiked end on two layers of heavier gauge sheet metal, it penetrated up to the handle with no problem!!!
Definitely a good buy. The one complaint i have is that its butt cap is really loose
boght this for a friend birthday and was amzingly impressed. despite it not being brand name and some minor issues it fixed up amazingly nicely.the key problems were:the head was a little loose( but on closer inspection it is in fact held in place into the wood by a metal pin, so loosenes is merely an annoyance)the "support strips" that run down the sides for strength were a little loose alsothe but cap was loose and wobbledthe wood handle was poorly sanded and uncomfortable in the hand due to the fact that its SQUARE.BUT ALAS!i fixed each and every one of these problems easily, all that i did was used loads of superglue on the head to stop it from noticeably moving, same with the support strips and the butcap.now the handle was a little tricky to figure out, what i ended up doing was i sanded it with a 500 sandpaper for a while untill it was nice and smooth and felt good in the hand, then i heavily oiled the whole thing, wood and all, wiped the oil off and there it was, a beutiful, deadly weapon that my friend now calls "the can opener" , due to what it would do to armor.
I was extremely impressed with the quality of this product. When you hold it in your hands it feels like a functional weapon. It seems sturdy as well as durable. One of the best in my collection.
Its a great piece to have in any collection, I love the hammers head and the over all feel of this weapon. The only way i could think to make it better is to have the handle finished and to make the bottom spike set in the wood a little better, but over all its an over all GREAT buy!!!
The head was a little loose, but its very easy to fix. This is such a fun weapon to swing around. Swords you have to worry about scratching or even ruining the blade; this you do not.
OMG! amazing weapons its just beautiful. Well worth the price, a must get for any collector or some one just wanting to destroy something
An amazing piece! Well worth the price and also the best deal I could find online. Nothing seemed lacking when I got this a few day after ordering. All parts were very sturdy. Nothing loose at all. Wood handle is light but holds the metal very well.
Product is well built and hefty, I like it alot. When it first arrived it appeared to have been damaged in shipment, cracked and splintered wood handle, the best thing about True Swords is their customer service. Within a few days they sent me a replacement that is in perfect condition, no hassels. Can't beat that kind of customer service!
A very nice weapon for the money! The head has a good weight and it is well constructed. I was afraid (from the picture) that the handle was too short, but it's just right. The only drawbacks were that the wood was not finished and the support strips should have been inset in the handle. But I was still impressed enough to buy another one. Thanks BudK!
This is a fine fine piece. Well balanced, though I haven't tested it yet on anything solid. It seems rather sturdy with the only flaw being that the head is a little loose. However, after some tugging and pulling initially I can say I feel rather assured this hammer head is not going anywere.More importantly its a beautifull displace piece. If push came to shove I'm certain this weapon would hold its own in a fight, and likewise with style. The stainless steel and fitted gaurds are beautifull as ewll.An awe inspiring weapon and a good choice for all collectors. I suggest one in every medieval weapons collection.
