This weapon proved effective in use against ever stronger mercenary armor. The flail became famous in Bohemia by the Hussites in the 15th century. Thanks to the chain, the impact on the enemy armor was not transferred back into the handle. The chief tactical virtue of the flail was its capacity to strike around a defender's shield or parry. Its chief liability was a lack of precision and the difficulty of using it in close combat, or closely ranked formations. The wooden handle for 1-2 hands is made of ash wood.
