| A spiked flail with longer spikes and a heavier head
"'Ah! ah! ah!' laughed his two men, 'how the Norman villains will be humbled when they see their doughty knight's skull beaten in by our brave countrymen.'"
-Tale of Chivalry; or, Perils by Flood and Field_. 1830.
This weapon falls into the 'Maces & Flails' category. It is a two handed weapon, and it is best used by the strong.
Dire flails have a fairly low base delay considering their damage output, although they are two-handed. If you're a mace user and haven't yet found a shield, consider using one even if you are planning to ultimately go for a one-handed weapon; it has better damage output than all one-handed maces except eveningstars and demon whips, both of which are quite rare.
