A war hammer (French: martel-de-fer, "iron hammer") was a weapon used by both foot and horse forces. It is a very old weapon that was named after Judah Maccabee, a 2nd-century BC Jewish rebel, and Charles Martel, one of France's monarchs, due to its regular use. The war hammer evolved into an ornately adorned and attractive weapon in the fifteenth and sixteenth century.


A maul is a heavy-headed, long-handled hammer made of wood, lead, or iron. It is sometimes depicted with a spear-like spike on the fore-end of the haft, similar in appearance and function to a modern sledgehammer.


The maul appears to have been used as a weapon in the late 14th century. Rebellious inhabitants of Paris took 3000 mauls (French: maillet) from the municipal armory during the Harelle of 1382, earning the rebels the nickname Maillotins. Later that year, at the Battle of Roosebeke, Froissart recalls French men-at-arms using mauls, demonstrating that they were not simply peasant weapons.


Archers used the maul extensively throughout the 15th and 16th centuries. English longbowmen are reported as employing lead mauls at the Battle of Agincourt, originally as a tool to drive in stakes but later as improvised weapons. Other references throughout the century (such as Charles the Bold's 1472 Ordinance) indicate that it was still in use. As late as 1562, they are mentioned as a Tudor archer's weapon.


A mace is a blunt weapon, a type of club or virge that delivers powerful hits with a hefty head on the end of a handle. A mace is constructed up of a robust, heavy wooden or metal shaft with a head composed of stone, bone, copper, bronze, iron, or steel, which is commonly strengthened with metal.


To facilitate greater penetration of plate armour, the head of a military mace can be fashioned with flanges or knobs. Maces come in a wide range of lengths. Foot troops' maces were usually relatively short (two or three feet, or sixty to ninety centimetres). Cavalrymen's maces were longer, making them better suited to blows given from a horseback. Two-handed maces have the potential to be significantly larger.
