Introduction: IRON FLAIL.

Picture of IRON FLAIL.

Is there anything cooler , Stronger, baddest that Epic Game weapons?  When you choose the weapon that helps you in the Quest,It should be able to handle just about anything life throws your way.

If you are a fierce warrior that slash hordes of orcs and other evil armies, don´t you think that would be awesome if you really handle those ammo in your hands?
Well I´m the kind of gamer that really get in the role.Since I begin to play Epic Role Video Games I was wondering to have some weapons in my wall that remains in my family for Aeons.
That would be an awesome piece of decoration for your cave.
Need no more words, time to battle.!!

Warning and disclaimer. This is a display piece, not intended to be used as a weapon, I  bear no responsibility for any injuries sustained if the warning is ignored.Flails and many other "jointed" weapons (such as nunchaku) constitute prohibited weapons in Canada, and are illegal to possess without proper licensing.

I made this weapon to use only in self defense against ORCS, ZOMBIES, WEREFOLVES AND ANY EVIL CREATURES THAT INTEND TO HURT MYSELF AND MY BELOVED ONES.Its not made to killmyself or anybody else.Is just for fun and decorative puposes, so chill out and stop thinking those crazy things.

Step 1: Stuff & Making

Picture of Stuff & Making

Forged Manganese + Iron Ball.(2.5 kilograms)
Iron chain.40 cms.
Piece of wood.35 cms.
Arc welder.
Welding rods.
Clear Varnish.
The main part is the Iron ball. It's made of manganese and Iron and its from a Wet mill of a Cement plant.It weights 2.5 kilograms.
First I carved the wood handle. Then I made a C figure in iron and attached to the handle with an Iron rivet.Finnally I welded the 40 cms.chain to the Iron ball and paint in Black.

Step 2: Iron Mace Smash !!!.

Flexible weapons are infamous for causing injuries to the wielder's hand. To reduce the chances of such make sure the chain is short enough that the ball can't strike the hand on the grip; or conversely, long enough that the ball on the chain goes past the hand's grip on the staff.

Lachlan Van Vliet (author)2014-05-23

just a tip,
you should attach the c figure to the handle so there isn't a gap and it's bolted to the top as well as the sides, just to make it more secure

Thank u so much. Indeed it's so hard to handle. I will fix that issue.

You did a great job on this!

Mr.Sanchez (author)BLASTFEMI2013-10-26

Thnx for da comment. I hope I`d deserve your vote !!

charlesian2000 (author)2013-04-21

Just don't ever try to use it, You'll get sore fingers... or worse ;-)

A fun wall hanger though.

jnunz (author)charlesian20002013-04-22

lol, dont worry ima build it and shoot it out of my cannon at a wall. i still say its better than the high heel snow plows.... wth? really.....

Mr.Sanchez (author)jnunz2013-04-26

It seems that in this time I was not worthy of become a winner.I´ll keep on trying.Thanks for the comment.

There's always next time ;-)

I used everyday and I don´t get sore fingers..why ?? Because I wear leather gloves and a helmet and Goggles. Thanks for ask.

Just be careful, they didn't make them in the past like this for a reason ;-)

Ok I will.I think they do this to knock knock in the enemies doors.=)

I've used a few western weapons in a sporting situation, and the "ball and chain", is pretty awful to use.

If the chain is as long as the stick or longer the weapons can't be controlled, the weapon controls the wielder. You've probably found this out if you swing your toy and try to stop it following through. One handed it's a carnival ride :-D

Lengthen the stick to a two handed pole, and you'll get a bit more control, and if you do this you will find that you can have a bit more fun too ;-)

Nice job.. I'd suggest putting in a disclaimer that it is a display piece, not intended to be used as a weapon, and that you bear no responsibility for any injuries sustained if the warning is ignored.

Mr.Sanchez (author)CeltiKaos2013-04-26

Done !! Thanks for comment.

Mrballeng (author)2013-04-19

This is intense!

Mr.Sanchez (author)Mrballeng2013-04-23

Do you know how exactly is the meaning of :"Soon" ???

Mr.Sanchez (author)Mrballeng2013-04-19

Yup !!! The waiting is killing me.But again I got the honor of being a finalist with you.BTW Piranha is just AWESOME !!!Good luck and that the Best Win.!!

ggboom5 (author)2013-04-22

Isn't the proper term for this weapon: a Flail?

vincent7520 (author)2013-04-22

Any skull around ?… :/

dsmithtx (author)2013-04-17

how long is the chain? where did you get the ball? how much does it weigh? info like this would be helpful.

Mr.Sanchez (author)dsmithtx2013-04-17

Chain 40 cms. The Ball is from a cement wet Mill and you can find it here.

yellowcatt (author)Mr.Sanchez2013-04-21

Ha ha, the minimum order for any of the suppliers on you link is one Metric Ton.

Sell the rest on Ebay! I'm sure there are plenty of other zombie slayers out there that would grab them up!!

Mr.Sanchez (author)yellowcatt2013-04-21

Is'nt awesome how many flails you can make.!!

gurglash (author)2013-04-21

nice one but your chain is too long for the piece of wood
your are going to hurt or kill yourself using this ;-)

Mr.Sanchez (author)gurglash2013-04-21

Woaa...chill out a little I´m not going to hurt myself or anybody else.It´s only for display purposes.In fact, i added 10 cms more so the strength of the impact its more effective.

random squigles (author)2013-04-21

Have you broke your knee caps yet?

Nope ...yet.But thanks for ask.I´ll let you know if happen.

Black Rook (author)2013-04-21

This is a very nice piece, and I applaud your skills in crafting it.

I would like to offer a warning to anyone in Canada, however, who was thinking of making this or something similar. Flails and many other "jointed" weapons (such as nunchaku) constitute prohibited weapons in Canada, and are illegal to possess without proper licensing.

However, many other handheld weapons are legal (for example a non-spiked mace) so it is best to consult legal precedent in your area before making anything like this.

Again, great Instructable, and a lovely build.

Unless your opponent is armored, a rolled up newspaper is just as effective, will cause fewer self-inflicted injuries, and be a lot less conspicuous.

Mr.Sanchez (author)2013-04-18

After a lot of smashing tests I learnt that I really need a Helmet and a pair of goggles !!!Safety is first !!

Tupulov (author)2013-04-17

Zombies beware! Well done.

Mr.Sanchez (author)Tupulov2013-04-17

Hell yeahh !!!you can smash three zombie heads with just one hit.You got to love it.(just kidding..there are no zombies...YET!!)

Mr.Sanchez (author)M.C. Langer2013-04-16

Guess what !! Now it's in the kitchen smashing Panelas.Hehehehe...

jarikcbol (author)2013-04-16

where in the blazes did you find that large of a steel ball?

Mr.Sanchez (author)jarikcbol2013-04-16

Hehe...that`s a good question, that piece of awesomeness belonged to my Dad and he rest in peace. It`s a tottaly mistery.Thnx for the comment.

overblast (author)2013-04-16

I would make the "C" plate longer. You'll need a 2nd rivet to stabilize the "C", or it will eventually wear out the wood, become wobbly and dangerous. A 2nd rivet will keep it from moving. Add 3" to each side and put a 2nd one down further to allow the wood to aborb the vibrations.

The Rambler (author)overblast2013-04-16

Yeah we wouldn't want that thing to become dangerous! Haha I kid, I kid.

Mr.Sanchez (author)The Rambler2013-04-16

Indeed, safety first.

Mr.Sanchez (author)overblast2013-04-16

Thanks!! I will...soon.

Technically it's a flail not a mace.
The defining characteristic of a flail is that they involve a separate striking head attached to a handle by a flexible rope, strap, or chain.
A mace typically consists of a strong, heavy, wooden or metal shaft, often reinforced with metal, featuring a head made of stone, copper, bronze, iron, or steel. Sometimes seen with a spiked head at the end known as a spiked ball.
Looks good though.

Mr.Sanchez (author)nnygamer2013-04-16

Ok ,I´m going to make some changes.
