This Greek-style Butt Cap for spears protects the shaft and keeps it from splintering. It also gives balance to the spear. But, the Greek cleverly realized it could also be used as a secondary spearhead should the primary spearhead (#600074) be broken. No Greek spear is complete without this butt cap.

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.
The Celt-Iberians of Roman times were justly famed for their weapons, such as the Falcata; one of the most devastating swords ever made! The inward curving blade delivered a tremendous blow and could split both shield and helmet. Considered to be of Greek, or possibly Etruscan origin, this sword spread into Southern Russia and also Spain. It was in Spanish hands that it was most feared by the Romans. The blade is made from high carbon steel. The handle is solid brass. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts. Comes with scabbard.
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.

The Peltasts or light infantry of ancient Greece were often armed with multiple light javelins, often with throwing straps to increase standoff power. Our javelin head has been modeled for use after these lighter yet deadly spears. Hand forged of tempered steel, these heads are made to fit wooden shafts of 7/8" diameter.
