Commonly known as the war club, this weapon was used in the early 16th century--likely because it was relatively easy to manufacture and extremely effective. 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 club could drop the enemy or crush a skull with little effort. The club was sometimes spiked with a short lance point or one or more knife blades. Working with custom bladesmith Rich McDonald, Cold Steel president Lynn Thompson developed this version. Watch out!
