The Medieval Flail

The Medieval Flail is not as varied as the Mace but it did have some interesting variations. The basic concept is a heavy weight that is attached to the end of a handle by a chain. When this is swung it generates enormous force - much more force than the Mace could deliver. It also had the added advantage of being able to reach over or around armor and shields. The flail was a weapon that did not actually see a lot of action among knights in the middle ages. This was because the sword was held in such high esteem and was the weapon of choice.
