Medieval Flails

Like the mace, the medieval flail was a weapon that developed to give warriors a way to negate the advantage that superior armor might grant in battle. And also like the mace, the flail developed a reputation as a weapon that armor offered little protection against, while also offering a few advantages that even a mace could not begin to provide. As with the mace, the flail is primarily a blunt force weapon, although the addition of spikes and other potentially nasty additions gave the flail a more impressive and more deadly air, as well as a more efficient and deadly strike. Unlike the mace, though, which consisted of a weight and a haft, the flail consisted of a weight, attached to a chain, which was then affixed to the haft. The added length of chain gave the weapon far more versatility, as the chain length could be used to ensnare weapons, while also allowing a warrior to spin the weight and add a bit more force to every blow. Plus, the chain enhances a warriors range, allowing them to strike out from further and at varying angles. Imagine the convenience of a weapon that can strike over a shield and crush the helmet and you have the very picture of why the flail was useful and effective. At Dark Knight Armoury, we offer a wide range of flails, ranging from the purely decorative to the fully functional. We also offer a few subtle variations, which take the classic flail and enhance its destructive power by adding in additional flail heads. After all, if one is deadly, two is worse, and three is absolutely unbeatable. Hung on a wall, these medieval flails will harken your thoughts back to the days of medieval knights who carried this brutal weapons into battle, and in reenactments of your own, they will cause your foes to flee for fear of being hit by this lethal looking instrument.
