16th Century German Mace

 Out of Stock  


By the 15th Century, armor had become so well developed that it was almost impervious to a sword cut and even a thrust. This heavy German mace, which evolved from man's oldest weapon, the club, could make short work of armor. With a few full sound blows the best of plate would be so damaged that the wearer's movement would be greatly impaired, quickly leading to defeat. This is an excellent example of 16th century mace, even though similar maces were already in use by late 15th century. This mace has 8 flanges and is made from steel. The bottom of the shaft is wrapped in black leather for an improved grip.

Weight 1.8kg (4 lbs), overall 61cm (24”). Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.
