Congratulation Mike and I'm sort of relieved that somebody else won because I already won a Baselard dagger from Tod a while back and it's good for the " goodies " to get spread around more widely.

Looks like a really nice mace head and looking forward to your hands on impressions of it: A large melon or pumpkin should meet a tragic end so that we can have a nice squishy report about the results. Wink Laughing Out Loud Cool

Tod does really good work as Stephen wrote in his post and these early maces are lighter but very fast in recovery compared to later maces.

You can easily give up your freedom. You have to fight hard to get it back!

Well done Mike, I hope you enjoy it.

Personally I love this mace. I first saw it in an Osprey book several years ago and finally made a master for it last summer I think (or maybe the one before). It is a real honour this job in that I can just see an item and decide to make it and then look for the customers so I can on accassion really indulge myself and this was one of those pieces.

Happy very belated Birthday Nathan, and I second the thoughts of those who thank you for making this site available for us all. A great resource and interesting place to hang out.

Tod-

Thanks for chiming in. It's funny, these maces never really appealed to me when I saw them published in books or even after seeing your creations. That is, until it arrived here and I got it in my hands. Once that happened, things "clicked" and I realized that these small-headed maces are little badasses. The amount of concentrated power that they can deliver to such a small area is pretty impressive and they're attractive to boot. You've won me over on these things.

Cheers
