Handsome piece, lightning fast delivery. The taper on a five-dollar hardware-store rake handle fit the socket perfectly, and (since I'm not planning to take it into battle)carpet tacks through the two pin holes hold it very securely.
Solid and strong spear. Came with two holes in the side so that you can pin the head to the shaft. This is very helpful. Spearhead has nice weight and presence to it--not light or flimsy by any means. The head itself is nice and thick. Haven't mounted it yet, but it looks like it can more than do the job when it comes to piercing and slashing.
Nicely made spear. Easy to use.
Very well made. I was surprised to see that the socket already has two holes drilled for pinning to shaft...saves me an extra step in assembling the spear. :)
I'm using 2,000 lb epoxy plus two small wood screws (3/8"x1/16") to secure the spearhead and butt cap (be sure to thoroughly clean the interior of the socket first) to the ash shaft.
