Flanged Mace
Location: Worldwide
Common Construction: Iron or Steel

Flanged mace is a general term for maces that have metal protrusions known as "flanges" that assist in denting and piercing armor. Strictly speaking the mace is no more than a fancy club, but advances in metalworking allowed the creation of flanged maces that could pierce armor when swords of the period could not.

Flanged maces have been used in many countries around the world, enjoying a particularly long lifespan in the Middle East, and later in Europe.
