Commonly known as the ball headed war club, this weapon was used in the early 16th century. The better clubs were carved from a naturally curved hardwood root burl, sapling or branch. The wood of choice was hornbeam (ironwood). In battle, a blow from the ball of the club could break a limb or crush a skull with little effort. The ball was sometimes spiked with antler, bone, knapped stone, or iron. Working with custom bladesmith Rich McDonald, Cold Steel president Lynn Thompson developed this version.
