A beautiful High Gothic knightly weapon, this mace is one of the most recognized forms of medieval arms of all time. It has been displayed in the raised hand of the gothic mounted armor in the Wallace Collection, London for many years. The photo of this display has graced the cover of many books on armor and weapons.
The sweeping pierced flanges of the head, hexagonal shaft, and bronze base finial are all features of the gothic mace. The head of this item is copied directly from the original in exacting detail. Its balance and weight allow this brutal weapon to be wielded with incredible agility and speed. It is a truly classic example of the innovation and talent of the arms makers of this period.
Please Note: While all-steel maces are sturdy they are not indestructible. They were designed for striking targets softer and less dense than the mace – namely warriors wearing steel armor which was considerably thinner than the mace flanges. Bashing a steel mace onto concrete roads, dense trees and wood beams, cinder blocks, I-beams and other hard or dense targets may result in bending the steel mace, damaging its flanges or causing other damage.
