Best all around apocalypse hand weapon:
This pictured one is made by coldsteel. It is tempered on both ends and costs like 30 bucks.
A war hammer was designed in the medieval times to defeat metal plate armor. It’s head served to dent and collapsed armor ( making it useless) wile the spike could pierce straight through it. This could take out any modern armor as well. I once sent the spike straight through a motorcycle helmet.
It’s light enough to be swung with one arm but is very powerful when two hands are used.
As a tool you can smash out door locks, Windows, car doors, cinder block walks, any kind of fence and really anything you can think of that’s in your way. As use as a weapon it is very intimidating. The war hammer is easily a one hit kill weapon. You can smash any bone or defence with the hammer end and use the spike to pierce any armor or use it to hook your enemy.
