Warhammer were a type of one-handed melee weapon.[citation needed]

Description[]

Resembling a large, heavy sledge hammer (striking surfaces on either side of the head), the warhammer was originally adapted from the tools of laborers and craftsmen but is no longer suitable for anything but combat.[2]

Weaponology[]

The warhammer was normally wielded one-handed and was considered a martial weapon that dealt bludgeoning damage.[citation needed] However, in fantasy it evolved to be commonly depicted as a large weapon of considerable destructive power, weight and size, but its hulking size and cumbersome weight made it so where only the very strong or tall could effectively utilize the weapon.
