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.
Incredible value for the money, and a great throwing javelin.
I've ordered six (6) more. Thank you.
Everytime I order a product for Museum Replicas,every Beautiful piece is very strong and exacting to the historic references,Hank Reinhart did you all a great service Bless his Heart .These pieces are serviceable and Lasting with beauty to match I treasure every piece that I purchase for my collection of medieval weaponry I thank you for your product and your awesome prices such a great service you have there, and when I have one sharpened it is razor sharp immaculate thank you for such awesome products the beauty is unsurprising keep up the great work you have a lifetime customer who's always satisfied thank you!
A nice solid piece that will endure in battle. Craft the correct diameter of a pole, insert tightly and expect success.
Looks great I just should have read to measurements but it is still worth it
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!
