In stock


With the discovery of metal, spears became much more effective. In just about all cultures metal butt caps were used to protect the base of the shaft, and to add balance to the overall weapon. Can be used for any spear since the beginning of the Iron Age, from Viking to Medieval and more. Well made of mild steel, and give an improved appearance as well as balancing the spear. Generic, and does not represent any one specific time or place. Ready to mount. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.

Does the job perfectly.
Functions perfectly as a counterbalance to any spearhead.  Makes wielding a spear much easier and more effective.  Also helpful in grounding the spear, or as a non lethal striking surface

I used this cap with the hewing spear tip and a 6-foot pole. I was concerned about adding more weight, but it actually feels lighter because the balance is so much improved! I think this brought the center of gravity of the long spear back about a foot. I drilled holes to match those on the hewing tip to secure it. Looks great too.

Good Piece
I bought this to cap the end of my wife spear.  Good for protecting the spear's base and gives it a more finished look.

A perfect fit for my staffs! The construction and craftsmanship is great! Has a good heft and functional design. Only thing that I will add is a pin hole at the base. Thank you MRL!

The fit and finish is better than shown in the photo. I am very pleased! Shipping was fast too!

This is a massive hunk of metal! It's well-made but not refined, it has a real period "blacksmith" look about it...well worth the $25. Can't wait to find a quality shaft to put it on!
