German Mace, 16th Century

By the 15th Century, armor had become so well developed that it was almost impervious to a sword cut and even a thrust. This heavy German mace, which evolved from man’s oldest weapon, the club, could make short work of armor. With a few full sound blows the best of plate would be so damaged that the wearer’s movement would be greatly impaired, quickly leading to defeat.

Poviem Vám, že ako som otvoril krabicu, nestačil som sa diviť. Proste dokonalé. Ten palcát pred tým bol spracovaný tak, že by som ho pravdepodobne vyrobil aj sám s tými nástrojmi čo mám doma. Tento kus je však unikát, umelecké dielo. Zvary rovnomerné, krásne uhladené, telo zbrane celistvé bez závad, kožená omotávka na rukovati je pevne zošitá, nikde ani stopa po nedokonalosti. Je mi priam ľúto použiť ho na akýkoľvek scénický šerm.
