Translated to mean “War Hammer”, The Chui was seen around the 12th Century in Feudal China. Similar to the European Mace, The Chui was a solid 3 to 5 pound iron or steel ball. Mounted on a 2 to 4 foot wooden handle, they would be used to strike an enemy (and inflict bone crushing or fatal injuries). Longer handles would able The Chui to be used by mounted Warriors. In ground combat however, The Chui was used in pairs (as one would imagine 2 War Hammers being spun around).
