This saying comes from this nautical fact:
Aboard ship there was an iron ball attached to a long handle. It had a special name that is part of this clue. When the ball was heated it was used to seal the pitch in deck seams. And, sadly for some sailors, it made a handy weapon when crewmen started quarrelling. Quarrels became more frequent the longer the ship was out to sea.
What is the name of this ship’s tool that people still use in describing melees today?
