Seller: old_weird_stuff (3,719) 100%, Location: Richmond, Virginia, Ships to: Free Local Pickup, Item: 332037160989 Really amazing cast iron grapple [as the title says: a necessary component or tool for all would-be world conquerors] as all you need is a couple of these; a lot of rope; a trebuchet or 2; and a couple 100 thousand fervent fanatical followers and you can capture and sack any city you want, a la Genghis Khan. This grapple would be used to draw scaling ladders up against the besieged city once it was cast over the walls by the trebuchet. It has markings on one "arm", 10 of 'em, which either signify the strength of the iron/steel OR were "success" notches, indicating how many cities this grapple was used successfully against. Uncleaned, it is in the as purchased condition from 15 years ago [I got it in China]. It measures about 34 inches tall; about 27 inches in length across the arms, and weighs about 50 pounds House Condition: solid as iron
