Authentic Antique 17th century Polish horseman's War Hammer Nadziak Hungarian Harci Csakany
SOLD Authentic Antique 17th century Polish horseman's War Hammer – Nadziak or Hungarian horseman's Harci Csakany. Details: A steel head with tapering octagonal spike and faced square rear hammer mounted on its original wooden haft, with a hole for a suspension tassel. The steel head is corroded but professionally cleaned. The previous owner informed us that on the top of the wooden haft there were small remains of a cylindrical socket made of a tiny sheet of iron 10 cm (4 in) long, on which was mounted a steel head, however completely deteriorated by corrosion, when he removed the steel head to clean the rust the remains of the iron socket just fell into small pieces. The steel head is extremely well hand forged. By the pitting and the penetration of the rust it clearly shows lamination in the steel forge layered structure. MEASUREMENTS: Overall length: 67 cm (26 3/8 in). Overall length of the steel head: 15.6 cm (6 1/8 in).
