Slick flavour text, rather situational ability (and expensive). Gimme Bonesplitter, or, better yet, Rancor.

This card has already such a marginal use, therefore i think the trigger should have been activated just by attacking.
Yeah, it might also provide +2/+0 and isn't rendered completely useless against decks without equipments - but those are quite a lot.
I prefer Manriki-Gusari to that one (which isn't that good either).

But as opposed to the latter mentioned equipment, this one has a name, artwork and flavor text which would also have suited to the card if it destroyed any artifact rather than just equipments.
Sigh, having a Bonesplitter - Latulla's Orders crossover would have been much cooler.

Wombo-Combo with Bludgeon Brawl to smash random trinkets.

This might look like a really, really situational trigger for most, but allow me to remind you all that in older formats, everyone and their mother plays Umezawa's Jitte. A bit of a stretch, but a decent sidedecking option against it.

Sadly, I can't say the same for Sword of the Meek in Extended Thopter Foundry, since that one just keeps coming back.

This card has worked wonders for me. I play often against someone who likes to put multiple Mage Slayers onto his creatures, this + a Swampwalk of Whispersilk Cloak has done wonders for me.

Sideboard tech against Caw-Blade?

An absolutely abysmal card, it is nowhere near worth it's uncommon status, what with all the ferocious equipment cards in Standard (said with the utmost sarcasm). There are horrible equipments that exist in standard at the moment, none of them even coming close to being an irritation like the old beauty of the Loxodon Warhammer, and people at game shops who play in the older formats can generally deal with artifacts in some other, more consistent way than hoping your creature gets through. If, perhaps, the hammer gave some way of invoking panic in your opponent, like first strike, fear, whatnot, I could see it as being good. As it stands now, it's kinda pathetic.

You know, you'd think this would actually appear in decks that plan to win against Batterskull and Sword of Feast and Famine. I mean, Caw-Blade is such a popular deck, this could dominate the mirror! I don't get it. I just don't get it.

Yeah just get a Phyrexian Obliterator to pick one of these up, it has trample and no one wants to block it anyway, so it should be able to smash some swords.

It's no Bonesplitter,

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
