Made by a craftsman and used by warriors. The stick was obtained from "Mukithia" tree. The heavy steel at the end of the club is a waste of iron sand. The blacksmith sold this wasted stuff to young men to make clubs. The leather skin around the steel is of cowhide. The club is sold in exchange for one goat and used for fighting.
