This Turkish Mace is a robust mace crafted from steel and finished with a stitched leather grip and a leather wrist-retention strap. Although named a Turkish mace, maces similar to this simple, but effective form could be found throughout Eastern Europe, the Middle East and India.
This mace is a solid striking weapon capable of crushing armor with concussive force – it cleverly resists the urge to mount a oversized and overly heavy mace head in favor of striking velocity – coupled with a solid spherical head this gives the mace more than enough mass needed to fill its role quite ably.
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.
