| A large hammer with a spiked head.
"The hammah that John Henry swung,
-Onah L. Spencer, _John Henry_. Early 20th cent.
This weapon falls into the Maces & Flails category. It is a one handed weapon, and it is better for the strong.
The hammer is a novelty weapon with mediocre combat performance which you can only find in vaults, most notably Crazy Yiuf's cottage. Although functional early on, their mediocre damage output makes them a poor choice after the earliest floors. Keep an eye out for a good mace, flail, or morningstar to replace it. Due to its superior speed, even a whip is often a better weapon, particularly if it has a good brand such as electrocution.
