Not a big fan of mauls, myself. They're cumbersome, and a good two-handed warhammer would accomplish similar impact with about half the weight (there's this little factor called velocity...)

I do like some of the warhammers on that page. Does anyone know about the durability of their products?

I was under the impression that these were more of a fantasy item adapted from mallets used to pound stakes into the ground for archers (refer to the large thread we had going a little while ago).

I think it looks cool enough, but without langets, all that thing is good for is a rousing game of croquet with some Hells Angels.

A guy not to long a go commented on their long swords being tough as nails on SFI. I think he bought striaght from the manefacter...some company in CZ. I will try to dig up the link.

The only historically correct one I've seen is this one by Manning Imperial.

This one is certainly not historically accurate, but it looks funny. Only for mortals though.
