About eighteen inches long, with one end wrapped in rawhide and the other tipped with an evil-looking hook, this piece of chain looks like it got ripped straight from the ceiling of a butcher's storeroom, leaving some poor unfortunate sheep dead, flayed, and bleeding on the tiles. This is the kind of weapon that comes out just after the first rash bar brawler pulls a knife, and the kind of weapon that makes the Watch ask very blunt questions (size 11 questions, usually) of anyone they catch with one.
The butcher's chain is about a foot and a half long and an inch wide. It is made of steel and could be used as a weapon of type flail.
