Flegel

Primary Material: Hardwood, Iron This was a two-handed flail, actually the most famous and widely used type of flail found in Europe, and the only type of flail that seems to have played a significant role in European history. Invented by the Czechs, this design became widely popular due to the spectacular military success of the Bohemian Hussite rebellion of 1420-1434. Before this period relatively few flails show up in the European archaeological record or in Medieval art. The classic “ball and chain” type flail of innumerable fantasy films and RPG’s seems to be at least partly a Victorian (19th Century) invention, but to the extent that it did exist was apparently a refinement of this Czech infantry flail for cavalry (single handed) use. Some single-handed examples remain in public and private collections, in both primitive and expensively / well-made variants (see Flail, Heavy).
