The breath of the Dragon

Reconstruction hypothesis of a XV cent. war hammer
By the team Maio D’Azzal

The first prize for the tournament organized by the Company of Famaleonis was realised following two main ideas: uniqueness and usability.
With the president of the company Eugenio Larosa, we started to look for an object that could represent both these characteristics, a knightly war hammer was the clear choice.

This weapon, very popular between European knights and noblemen, could compete with other knightly weapons as estocs and maces for effectiveness in the battlefield.
We must consider that this kind of weapon was employed from the 14th to the 17th century and this is clear evidence of its dispersal and versatility.
For this reason our choice was naturally driven to this weapon that is at the same time one of the most representative and one of the less represented in the medieval reenactment world.
