This ferocious looking Medieval flanged mace has a dozen flanges and a single big spike - Weighty and imposing, this is a weapon that would make even the most heavily armored of opponents begin to doubt the protection of their armor.

The flanged metal head is of high carbon steel and it is secured to a wooden haft that has been darkened with a wood stain. It has two rows of metal studs embedded in the wood.

Flanged maces were a direct response to the increase in the use of plate armor in the later Medieval period. The flanges were designed to ‘’catch’’ a point on the opponent’s armor and to drive all the force of the blow into a single point. If this did not pierce the armor directly, the force of the strike could crush the armor inwards and literally batter and break a man within his armor. Many armors were designed to try to deflect the strike of weapons such as the mace and cause them to ‘’skip’’ on its surface and deny the mace the opportunity to drive all its energy onto a single point. This was necessary, as even the best of armors could not adequately defend a warrior from the full and direct force of a strike from a mace such as this.

Please Note: The dimensions of this mace and shade of the wood stain for the haft may vary. These are handmade by the manufacturer and their process for this specific item routinely creates a product with varying shaft length and shape, and in some cases varying dimensions for the mace head. The last photo illustrates these differences. Please understand that our measurements for this item are to be taken as approximations.
