This is a hammer advertised as 16th c. Polish... only the head appears to be original. I have no idea how you could get a replacement cap, but...

I hesitate to group mine in with 15th century halberds. On the other hand, very little attention is given to peasant weapons, so examples would be rare.

Known in Italian as a...
