Medieval Spiked Flail Weapon. It is sometimes referred to as a “Ball and Chain”. First, the striking point is a heavy steel ball about 5.5″ in diameter that is covered with sharp steel points. Second, the ball is attached to a 9″ link chain. Thirdly, the chain-link is attached to a 30″ wooden one-handed handle. The handle has worn-in depressions where fingers were placed. More importantly, this is a genuine Medieval Spiked Flail Weapon. It is not a reproduction. Therefore it would be the perfect gift for collectors and Medieval enthusiasts.
