* Fighting in the trenches in [[UsefulNotes/WorldWar1 The Great War]] necessitated a quieter breed of weapons. Sure you had your standard issue weapons, but when you need something with a little more oomph there's [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trench_raiding_club the trench club]]. Fashioned in the field by squad carpenters, they were made with any wood-handles and on-hand metals, including ''defused grenades'', to create maces, morningstars, and [[EpicFlail flails]] to get the drop on enemy troopers and finish them off after a gas attack.

* Vetinari in the ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' series walks with the aid of a cane, rumoured by some to conceal a sword. He encourages these rumours, because "if people think your stick might be a sword, they forget that it's ''definitely'' a stick." There's also Arch-chancellor Ridcully, whose staff is dependable enough as a bludgeon that he seldom needs to resort to fireballs, and Igor (not TheIgor, just a guy called Igor that runs a BadGuyBar) using a club with several {{Weaksauce Weakness}}es of the local beasties added on to it. For regular people, the fact it's a damn good club is usually enough.
