What the Heck is This?
« on: July 17, 2021, 01:22:59 PM »
Found whilst cleaning out my parents garage. There's apparently no history of the family being present at the battle of the Five Corners although I did hear my mum hollah "The Forty Thieves" for no reason once.

So what is it, a tool or a 'fackin' tool?



It's wood. It's got weight and there's a hole drilled into the handle (the thinner bit) which may have held a leather strap.

It does appear to be a truncheon. Try slapping some bastard round the head with it.

It's the top half of a traditional walking stick with the bottom end broken off. If you hold it with the short stump facing forward, the brown disc at the top should feel comfortable in the palm of your hand.

 1. And despite my certainty, probably wrong.

Clean living under difficult circumstances

Otherwise.

Too big for a truncheon
Too heavy and unwieldy as a walking stick

Could be viking shit.

at my partner's parents house i found a funny lil thing like this actually. in that case i felt it strongly resembled a 'trench club', one of the improvised hand-to-hand weapons in the first world war which took a number of different forms depending on what combatants could get their hands on. your thing is probably not that since it looks like it's made of wood?

I had wanted to say knobkerrie. Think they are associated with Africa rather than Ireland. You'll know which is more likely.
