Description of the Product

The club is no doubt the oldest weapon and the mace its most high-minded variation. Always a symbol of power and authority, its great advantages are simplicity and durability.  It never required sharpening and was very effective against unarmored opponents, as well as plate or mail armor. The first bronze mace heads were cast c. 2000bce in the Levant, and the mace made a comeback during the middle ages in Western Europe. The flanged version was in use by at least the later part of the 11th century. Previously the shafts of maces were either completely wooden, or partly wood, partly steel/iron, but after c.1470 they were mostly all steel or iron.

The mace as a weapon reached its popularity in Europe during the high middle ages among the knightly class. The rise in the popularity of the mace coincides with the improvements in armor. By the 15th Century, armor had become so well developed that it was almost impervious to a sword cut or even a thrust. But with a few decent blows even the best plate armor would be so damaged that the wearer's movement would be greatly impaired, quickly leading to defeat. Maces such as this were used in battles both from horseback as well as on foot.

This functional eight bladed mace dates to circa 1550, and is yet another example of weapons as art; pleasing to the eye, yet deadly in function.

Paikkakunnalla ollessani ja keskiajasta kiinnostuneena täällä oli pakko käydä. Aivan upea ja todella monipuolinen kauppa! Ystävällinen ja mukava myyjä neitonen esitteli minulle Etelä -Tirolilaisen mallin mukaan taidokkaasti valmistettua kypärää, josta tein myös kaupat. Liikkeen omistaja ei myöskään säästänyt vaivojaan esitellessään minulle haarniskavarustuksen eri osia. Erittäin asiakaslähtöistä palvelua! On todella hienoa, että tällaisia erikoisliikkeitä maastamme vielä löytyy, tämäkin kuulemma ainoa laatuaan. On varmaa, että vierailen tässä liikkeessä toistekkin! Täältä löytää uskomattoman paljon myös koriste-esineiksi ja lahjoiksi sopivia tavaroita, joten suosittelen tätä kaikille sellaisiakin etsiville.
