Long Description

Note: If you have a surface treatment, <head material> becomes <surface treatment> <head material>.

Horseman's:

Despite this hammer's weight, designed to lend crushing force to a cavalryman's blow, it almost soars in the hand. The <head material> striking face is perfectly flat, and the <shape> neck leads back to flat shield-shaped sides and a spiked finial. At the back, a <counterbalance> counterbalances the hammer head perfectly, and two studded straps of <head material> protect the top of the <haft material> haft when parrying a blow.

Footman's:

Despite this hammer's hefty weight, designed to crush shields and crumple armour, it almost soars in the hand. The <head material> striking face is perfectly flat, and the <shape> neck leads back to flat shield-shaped sides and a spiked finial. At the back, a <counterbalance> counterbalances the hammer head perfectly, and two long studded straps of <head material> protect the top of the <haft material> haft when parrying a blow.
