The Claymore Shilleagh workshop is all about experimenting with traditional peasant weapons.
The idea of the publican’s club was much like the early watchman’s baton. Rather than the heavy killing-blow tools of the trench club, these weapons were light, quick and intended to quickly give “fight dominance” over someone armed with a knife, a bottle or a skinfull of ale, without forcing the user to leave broken bones or worse. The thick shape of it was intended to look very threatening, whilst belying the fact that the light wood would deliver some bruises but that’s about all.
This is a super light, super fast club that has a great “caveman” look to it , but moves swift as lightning and hits no harder than you mean it to.
A great display piece for the collector and an innovative gift for the eclectic stickfighter
