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®.
  • Overall: 24"
  • Wt: 4 lbs

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!

A good tool for the price, it does seem, however, that the quality I had come to expect from Windlass Steelcrafts has deftnately gone down in the last five years or so. The mace could stand to have a bit more weight in the pommel to give it more balance. Otherwise, it seems to be a very servicable tool, particularly for the price

Decent weight and feel, not as heavy as I expected. Also the handle is a hollow tube, still quite sturdy, but after some abusive use on an old dog-house (I had to test it!) The handle did infact start to bend a bit under the impact, which did NOT happen in Windlass's older versions that looked much more beautiful with the gold fixtures and filaments.

poor construction, flanges are brazed on with brass. Finish is painted on. The grip is cheap and looks very modern.

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.

Just an FYI… I ordered this mace because there was a good review about it on myarmory.com. In the review it was stated that the finish was a fire blued finish, but what I received was not that. It seems Windlass has decided to change to a more economical painted on finish, probably either dipped or electro static. So FYI, not a black luster finish, it’s a black paint job. However, the finish is well done, evenly coated with no build-up or drips. I plan to strip off the paint and redo the grip, which will now be a lot more work.
