Polish Hussar Supply Plus
The weaponry used in Poland and Eastern Europe is
a mix of the best of Western and Eastern Europe
and the influences of Western Asia and the
Steppes. Turkish and Tartar fashion and weaponry
were very popular in the Polish-Lithuanian
Commonwealth in the late 16th and 17th
This is evident in Polish war hammers (nadziak)
and war axes (czekan).
These long- handled weapons with small heads were
quite effective when swung from horseback.
In the 17th century, nadziak war hammers and
czekans war axes also became fashionable walking
canes for the nobility
