    What is the heaviest sledgehammer that you guys have seen on the rack at a store? I want something that could double as a medieval weapon. Home depot doesn't quite seem to carry these.

    What would really kill is to go to a ****l scrapyard, or ****l dealer, and buy some 4"-6" round stock, about 12" long and make your own sledge. Drill a hole for a handle and its Paul Bunyan time baby!

    Menards had 10 lb sledge hammers
    Lowes had 12 lb sledge hammers
    Home Depot had 16 lb sledge hammers

    20 lb sledge hammers can be found

    I got a 16 lb with a fiberglass handle from Home Depot for $40. They don't have them on their website though.

    I'm 240 lbs and swinging a 16 lb is a lot of work for me, too heavy for good cardio really.

    Home Depot near me sells them up to 20#.

    As far as the middle age weapon thing. Weapons were generally no more than 4# for 1-handed and 8# for 2 handed, as this was the generally accepted weight that a someone would be able to weild effectively for an entire day.

    Ya.... my 16 lb just nicked my shin and it about floored me. It bends bolts with 1/2 inch steel rods with just a slight tap.

    I wonder how much easier it would be to postwhore now that everyone has the same av. You could make probably 30 posts in a row before anyone noticed that they were all by you.
