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 excellent example has 8 flanges and is made from steel which has a rust-protective coating in black to mimic the color of the original. The bottom of the shaft is wrapped in black leather for an improved grip. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®.

I have this mace, and while aesthetically pleasing, and well balanced, the shaft is VERY flimsy. I made a moderate strike (first strike ever) on a 5 gallon bucket, and the shaft bent more than 15 degrees. Pretty wall hanger and nothing more. If the mace had a nice ash shaft it would be different...

Very good replica, though the handle area precludes leather wrap. Substance used to protect item is extremely had to remove.

Very well made. Beautiful, flawless craftsmanship. The only thing I can negatively comment on is that the leather-bound handle (though beautiful) is slightly uncomfortable where the seem is. The stitches protrude a little so it's annoying on bare skin. Although if you're sporting any kind of glove or gauntlet you won't even notice.

This is a superbly simple weapon, but one of my favorites nonetheless. It has perfect balance and weight allowing the user to change directions swiftly. It is resilient and an all around nasty little weapon. Watch out for rust between the flanges though. It will require preventative maintenance. Fantastic weapon though.

I love this thing. looks and feels awesome. Leather wrap is top notch. Only complaint is that the shaft is hollow. Only hit things you know will give, I broke a wooden stool and realized I had bent the shaft. straightened it out though. otherwise awesome piece!

The actual weighs is arounf 2 pounds! The head is well done but the shaft seems weak/thin and could bend after a hard strike.
