The Sagaris was a weapon similar to a War Hammer or a small battle-axe. It was the Close-Range weapon of the Persian Immortal


The Sagaris is either depicted with a blunt, hammer-like head or a sharp, ax-like head, with a long 'ice pick'-like point opposite it. The slender wooden handle was about 30 inches long.


The Sagaris was often used by calvary units. It was light enough to be wielded one-handed, but could also pierce metal armor and helmets. A Sagaris wielded by Persian horseman Spithridates almost killed Alexander the Great at the Battle of Granicus.
