Long Description

This somewhat complex flail comprises a five-foot metal staff to which are attached no fewer than three metal chains of similar length at the end of which dangle three square pieces of steel, each with a little spike in the centre. The intent is to entangle the opponent's sword or to swing the spikes around to take advantage of inertia and impact when landing a mauling blow. A footman's weapon, it is most efficient against those who fight with little or no armour as the spikes aren't quite powerful enough to pierce plate.

Appraises As

The triple-chained war flail is about five feet long and four inches wide. It is made of steel and could be used as a weapon of type flail.
