A simple large hammer made with a head and hilt of metal. Different from the war hammer, this particular weapon has a head that is flat on both striking points, allowing any momentum received from one side to be released in the form of a counterblow through the other. Unfortunately, great physical strength is required to wield the sledgehammer, reducing the number of warriors who use this weapon. On the other hand, miners have been known to use it as a tool while working in tunnels.

In the Zodiac versions, it now provides 66 Attack, 2 Evade, 32 CT, 8% combo rate, has a 20% chance of inflicting Disable, and requires the Axes & Hammers 4 license for 50 LP.
