* The Irish shillelagh is a club made out of a big stick, usually with a large knob at the end. It's become a symbol of Irish culture, but also a symbol of Irish violence.
** Although predating the conquest of Ireland by the English, the shillelagh came in handy when the Irish were forbidden to own weapons. A "walking stick" that just happened to be stout and heavy enough to beat the tar out of someone- especially if you loaded it with a little lead in the head.

* Maces with glass or stone heads were invented in Mesopotamia and Egypt, and may have been the first weapons invented specifically for killing other humans instead of doubling as utility and hunting tools like the knife, spear, or bow and arrow. A large animal's skull is usually too thick to reliably crush with a mace, but people's are easier to crack. They became especially useful after the invention of helmets made of copper or bronze, since they could still give a person wearing one a concussion.

* Fighting in the trenches in [[UsefulNotes/WorldWarI 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 even [[EpicFlail flails]] to get the drop on enemy troopers and finish them off after a gas attack.

Perhaps the first weapon that humanity has mastered (besides his [[GoodOldFisticuffs own two fists]]), the good old-fashioned club simply consists of picking up a stick (or [[BadWithTheBone bone]]) and whacking something with it. Though the quality of these clubs has advanced over time, ranging from crudely carved pieces of wood to sophisticated maces, the general principle of bashing something over the head remains. A [[CoolSword sword]] isn't [[{{Pun}} cut]] for slicing through heavy armor, but a well-designed bludgeoning tool will leave a sizeable dent and break any bones underneath.
