Functional Maces

Formed from a strong shaft reinforced by metal around the head, historical maces are some of the most traditional weapons in existence. In the Middle Ages, warriors wearing chainmail and plate armor would often be protected against blows from swords and axes, while medieval maces would still be able to dent or penetrate armor with their blunt force. Combat maces varied in size with cavalry wielding ones with great enough length to strike from horseback and foot soldiers making use of shorter versions. Buying a Sword offers a variety of battle ready bludgeons, spiked clubs, morning star weapons, and flanged maces to give you the opportunity to pick the medieval weapon that best suits your needs. Crafted from high quality steel, iron, and wood, these functional maces come in many styles inspired by various eras and cultures, such as German and Italian versions.
