Maces are simple weapons and are likely descendants of the club, one of our ancestors' earliest weapons. Their purpose is simple—to crush and destroy. Against armour of mail or plate, edged weapons were not very effective and bludgeoning weapons like the mace used their concentrated mass and force to do what these other weapons couldn't. Many maces used flanges or spikes of varying shapes, enabling them to do their work without too much fear of breakage and without re-sharpening.

Arms & Armor makes this mace from cast mild steel. The tubular head is mounted to an ash haft with both a wedge (like modern hammers and axes) and a rivet that passes all the way through and is peened on both sides. The haft is stained a medium brown.
