The transition from Middle Ages to the Renaissance brought exquisite combination weapons like this 17th Century German flintlock pistol/axe. This unique non-firing, bladed classic combines the handy hand-axe or boarding axe with a flintlock to replicate a historic weapon that was doubly effective. The wood stock of the pistol serves as the shaft of the axe and the cast-metal axe head (not sharp) reflects a shape made for wide wounds and cutting power. This weapon features moving parts for safe dry firing. Rotate the frizzen, cock the hammer, and pull the trigger – the hammer falls just as it did centuries ago.
