Flat Ended Butt Cap


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.
  • Overall: 5"

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!

Solid. Nice counter-balance to spearhead. I like having a strong,non-lethal option.

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!

Pole not included.

Long Bladed Hewing 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.

One of the world’s most ancient weapons, the spear was a dominant presence on the field of battle for an amazingly long period of time. This particular blade form was put to use during a wide range of European history by a wide range of cultures, from Ancient Celts and Greeks to well through the Renaissance. The blade is tempered steel and the socket fits a 1-1/4" round pole (not included). Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.
