#006 Horseman's Axe

As armor improved, impact weapons, maces, war hammers, and battle axes became the weapons of choice. Wealthy knights could afford a more esthetic weapon like this axe. The long back spike was excellent for penetrating armor. The heavily curved blade delivered crushing blows from above when used on horseback.
