The Stake hammer is a quest item used in the Vampyre Slayer quest. During the quest, the stake hammer is given to players by Dr Harlow so that it can be used to drive a stake through Count Draynor's heart.
In order to complete the quest, this item is needed in the battle against Count Draynor, a Vampyre that became weakened from the ordeal of crossing the blessed River Salve to leave Morytania. He is even the brother of Lord Drakan. Being so weak, it doesn't require a Flail of ivandis to kill him; you only require a more classical stake and a stake hammer. A long time ago, a normal hammer could be used with the stake, but instead a stake hammer is now specifically used. The Morytania vampires, presumably being much stronger than Count Draynor in his weakened state, require a more straightforward approach than a hammer and stake. There does not seem to be any use for this item after the quest.
