Mace (Weapon)

A heavy medieval war club with a spiked or flanged metal head, used to crush armor. Note that real maces are illegal in NSW.

SCA Mace

Maces often have a foam head with rattan splints attached to the outside. This is then taped over and is attached to a relatively short handle(haft). A mace is considered a mass weapon.

Mace (Spice)

Mace is an aromatic spice that originally came from East Indonesia. Dried and leathery, mace has a very similar flavour to nutmeg, which isn't surprising. They're both sourced from from the same plant - nutmeg is the kernel of the fruit, mace is the lining that separates the kernel from the pulp.
