Various light hammers (zoom in for detail)

A light hammer is a light, martial melee weapon of the hammer family that can be used as a ranged weapon.[1]

DescriptionEdit

The light hammer is a small sledge hammer, usually with a haft made of wood about one and a half feet long (45cm).[2] Later versions of this weapon added a pick on the back of the hammer head. An average light hammer costs 1gp and weighs 2lbs (0.9kg).[3]

WeaponologyEdit

Classified as a light weapon, the light hammer can be used while grappling. Some training is required to use this weapon, especially for throwing, therefore it is considered a martial weapon. Normal maximum range of a light hammer is 100ft (30m).[4]

RealmsloreEdit

Light hammers are favored by dwarves.[5]
