Cardin's Mace is Cardin Winchester's weapon of choice.


Cardin's Mace is a large, black mace, with ten flat flanges being extended farther outward than a regular mace would and a red Dust crystal placed at the center, kept in place by four claws. It also has a button above the hilt, suggesting this activates the Dust function.

Cardin is capable of wielding it one-handed, suggesting either stunning strength on Cardin's part, or that the mace is relatively lightweight. When he fights, he uses the mace in combination with his own impressive strength, not relying solely on his weapon.

In "Jaunedice", Cardin effortlessly disarms Jaune Arc of his shield during their practice match. He then uses the shaft of his mace to block Jaune's attack before hitting Jaune hard with his knee, downing him and effectively ending the fight. In "Forever Fall, Pt.2", Cardin attempted to defend himself against an Ursa Major using his mace but was disarmed with a single swipe from the Grimm.

In "Extracurricular", Cardin's mace is shown to be able to discharge explosive blasts, even being able to fire off a series of explosions in quick succession all along the same line in certain situations, going towards in whatever direction it is currently aimed at that time.


  • The fire Dust crystal in Cardin's mace keeps to the theme of his character allusion to Henry Beaufort as it was his success at trial that condemned Joan of Arc to be burned at the stake.
  • In the RWBY manga, Ruby notes that Cardin's mace is made of titanium, channels Aura through the tips, and can break through a Death Stalker's carapace.
