Steven Seagal is a Martial Artist who should need no introduction. He found international acclaim and celebrity for his high-octane Action Movies, but he is first and foremost love is the world of Martial Arts.
With an encyclopedic knowledge of the Japanese warrior arts, a 7th Dan Black Belt in the art of Aikido and a lifetime of training, he is still a much-in-demand instructor and consultant. Whether working specialist techniques with UFC stars Lyoto Machida and Anderson Silva or travelling the world teaching seminars, there is no doubt that Steven is still a force to be reckoned with!
The "Helmet Breaker" of old was an incredibly powerful off-hand parrying tool and percussive weapon used by Japanese Warriors.
It was used to block, hook and parry an opponent's sword at longer ranges and to manipulate, wrench, and bludgeon at an opponent's armored head in standing / grappling range.
Rumored to be capable of prying open armor like an oversized battlefield can opener, there's no doubt it is more than capable of denting helmets, crushing skulls or breaking bones with sickening ease.
It's piercing point glides through armored targets with impressive ease, while the thick spine can be used to parry, deflect and turn even the heaviest of swords. The stout upturned "hook" can be used as a guard to protect the hand, while also momentarily trapping and binding an opponent's blade. In the hands of a trained fighter, the Helmet Breaker was a fearsome weapon that struck terror into the hearts of even heavily armored Samurai!
While testing this devastating weapon, Steven nicknamed it the "Mind Bender" because of its incredible bone crushing power!
Painstakingly reproduced from an antique original in Steven Seagal's collection, our Helmet Breaker is made to Steven's personal specifications. Every inch of this unusual weapon is made to the highest standards, from the polished blade to the hand painted and distressed scabbard (which replicates Steven's battle worn antique original).
A unique collector's piece that's sure to become the talking point of the collection of any Martial Artist or Historical weapons enthusiast.
