In stock


This early medieval mace would be a perfect offensive weapon in Norman warfare. Though lightweight, it could easily break bones and cave in a leather Saxon helm. The solid cast steel head has multiple blunt spikes and rope decoration, while the darkened, wooden shaft has indents for a sure grip. A steel butt cap with lanyard ring allows for easily transport on foot or horse, or enables you to tie the weapon to your wrist in battle.

  • Overall: 21-1/2"
  • Head: 2-1/2"
  • Shaft: 18"
  • Wt: 1 lb

Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.

Excellent, well made!
5 stars, a well made surprising light and nimble clubbing weapon.  The head is well made, wood is strong, and I like the finger grooves in the handle for more secure grip!  Ideal length and balance.  A great addition to my modest collection and I'm glad I bought it.  Thank you MR and Windlass!

Light and powerful
Shattered a piece of wood with this thing on the first day. Accidently dropped on my shoulder and still feel it 30 minutes later.

Love it!
This is my current favorite. Really well done. I haven't smashed anything with it yet but just lightly dropping it on my palm or thigh I can tell I wouldn't want be on the receiving end of this little beasty! Really nice construction. The head appears to be attached with a friction fit and rivet. There is a lanyard ring installed in the steel buttcap. Solid handle. The head is  nicely  antiqued and decorated. I LOVE THE KNOBBY LITTLE SPIKES. They are not going to break or bend like those cheap maces with really sharp looking, screw in chrome plated brass spikes. I keep mine by the nightstand for a "just incase moment". Ha ha! Really nice solid piece. LOVE IT!

Nice Mace!
What a great mace! Feels solid in the hand and definitely functional. The grip is also comfortable and the hardwood shaft is sturdy. Recommended!

This little knee knocker is delightful.  The woodwork is high quality "HARD" wood, not some pine dowel.  The cast head is good solid piece with a nice patina giving it an antique appearance.
