Spiked Weapons

Flail: The flail is a sturdy wooden handle attached to an iron rod, a wooden rod with studs, or a studded iron ball. Between the handle and its implement is either a hinge or chain link.

Morning Star: The morning star is a wooden shaft topped with a metal head made up of a spiked iron sheath. Morning stars have an overall length of about four feet. Some such weapons have a round, oval, or cylindrical shaped head studded with spikes. Extending from most morning star heads, regardless of design, is a long point for thrusting.
