This is a beast. It's HEAVY, I am not exaggerating, and we'll worth the price. Absolutely solid except for the cap, which is about 3-4" deep. This is a weapon on par with a mace, ideal for walking sticks (my use) and self defense. If you thrust with it, you'll crush any bone you strike. The pic doesn't do it justice. This is a BIG, solid piece of hardware.

This cap is quite heavy, heavier than many others.  It is so heavy, that it outweighs most spear heads, but would be good for counter balancing a halberd head.

Placed this on the opposite end of the long hewing spear pole, very nice!

Purchased one several years ago hope this do not rust like that one did

The socket is 1.0", compared to the 1.25" socket of the matching Greek Spearhead. I have to say I am very disappointed that the sockets on these two don't match. I'll have to taper my 1.25" spear shaft down on the butt end to make it fit. Not going to look like the spear I wanted... It actually doesn't even match the picture! the socket is about twice as log as shown. Also note that there is no hole to peen through to secure it to the shaft. I'll have to drill my own. Avoid buying this with the greek spearhead -- if it's all you want on the end of a stick, and you have a carbide drill bit, then this may work for you.

Fantastic, I took your greek spear butt through over a hundred miles on the trails and backroads in the Great Smokey Mountain National Forest the best I ever used.  Great for walking staffs with a kick, Heavy Duty and ready for action.  I carried it to protect from bear and boar on my journeys.  I also used it as a chisel to break off rock specimens.  It will easily pierce the steel on your car door.  I love it.

Greek Spearhead

#600074
The Greek Spearhead was the integral part of the principal weapon of the Hoplite, a heavily armed foot soldier whose principal weapon was “the long shadowed spear.” It was a weapon that varied in length from 6 to 18 feet, and could be used both as spear and pike. Shorter versions were used as throwing weapons. The earlier versions were made of bronze, but iron, once it was available, became the material of choice for the Greek spearhead.

Although we do not know the exact form and shape of the Viking Hewing Spear, we do know that they were used. This is a spear that would thrust effectively and yet have the power to cut decisively.

Hewing Spearhead

#600062
The spear is one of the oldest and most important of all hand weapons. The Celts, as well as the Vikings, used this type not for throwing, but as an effective cutting weapon. Socket will fit a 1-1/4" round pole (not supplied).
