Antique Spiked Flail
This collector’s item, the flail, is a Medieval specialty weapon (also referred to as a “ball-and-chain” or “military flail”) from the Middle Ages that was used in combat on horseback to sweep around a shield.
The striking point is a 4.5″ heavy metal ball that has several triangular points. In addition, the ball is attached to an 11-link chain which is attached to a wooden one-handed 20″ handle.
The handle has worn-in depressions where fingers were placed. In addition, one of the spikes is missing the end tip. The Antique Spiked Flail makes an impressive gift for collectors and Medieval enthusiasts.
