Poseidons' Trident
Sectioned (threaded), long handled trident, made from highly polished steel with a leather bound handle. The detachable (threaded) steel tip is in the shape of a small mace in this picture but it can be customised to any shape.

The Trident In History
TRIDENT (Lat. tridens, tn-, tres, three and dens, tooth), a three-toothed or three-pronged fork or spear.
Most famously the Trident was a symbol of Poseidons' (the Greek God of the Sea) power but it has also been linked to other religions and cultures. The Hindu God Shiva is said to have a trident with a stabiliser so that it will fly when thrown as a weapon. Roman gladiators were reputed to use them in the arena in conjunction with a net. Satan (the Devil) is often portrayed with a trident in his possession. The trident is also a symbol of the sea and is the central symbol in the flag of Barbados.





A Nasty Beak:
An evil and efficient-looking war Hammer. This weapon, variously referred to as a warhammer, crowsbeak and falcon's beak (bec de faucon) combined a concussive and armour destroying hammer face with a penetrating spike.




Medieval Armour-Busters:
A pair of battle ready flanged maces, all steel construction with leather hand grip.






A Knight's Flail of Devastating Power:
A display replica of a Morgenstern or 'Morning Star' mace.





Eastern Elegance:
An heavy duty, elaborately shaped and etched double bladed axe.




Massive Axe:
A massive Double Headed Battle Axe with a knife blade in the hilt.





A Spearhead with Wings:
A Dark Age winged spear head, the wings useful for parrying an enemy's attacks - or perhaps for holding away an impaled boar.
