The Peltasts or light infantry of ancient Greece were often armed with multiple light javelins, often with throwing straps to increase standoff power. Our javelin head has been modeled for use after these lighter yet deadly spears. Hand forged of tempered steel, these heads are made to fit wooden shafts of 7/8" diameter. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.
  • Overall: 9"
  • Head: 4-3/4" long, 1-3/4" wide
  • Wt: 6 oz

Bought two of them when they were the deal of the day and I'm very impressed. They seem too be very well made.

I like my javelin tipped spear. At the time I was considering a spear tip but thought javelin sounded sportier and would have a better chance with customs. I thinned the blade to almost a cutting edge leaving the flats flat. Then gave it a secondary bevel to finish the edge. I had planned on mounting it on a 1” x 6’ red oak staff but the vendor was out at the time and my freight forwarder gave me a price on a 5’ staff of $75 leaving me to guess at the 6’ price. This was on top of the staff’s price and domestic shipping. So I removed my Chinese hooked spear head and mounted the javelin head on a 6’ single tapered rattan staff which is surprisingly stiff. The finished spear is 79” and balances well without a counter weight on the butt. It is fast and penetrates well. I am very happy with my new spear.

A nice solid piece that will endure in battle. Craft the correct diameter of a pole, insert tightly and expect success.

Very impressive. Just what I was hoping for, but I can't find a long enough length of 7/8" dowel for the shaft. Have you considered offering 7/8" and 1-1/4" X 6' dowels?

Appears very good quality. Did not have a chance to mount on shaft yet. Sharpened them up. Held a nice edge. So far very pleased.

I have ordered two and will order one more to complete my Thracian javelin set. The javelin head is the perfect weight and size!
