Hurlbat

Hurlbat

A hurlbat or whirlbat is a ranged weapon consisting of an entirely metal throwing axe sharpened on every auxiliary end to a point or blade, practically guaranteeing some form of damage against its target. They were known to be popular in Europe from the mid-1400s to the mid-1600s. They were usually about six-mm-thick steel, which made them impressively light and easy to throw.
