Bought two of them when they were the deal of the day and I'm very impressed.  They seem too be very well made.
From: James, February 11, 2017
I like my javelin tipped spear.  At the time I was considering a spear tip but thought javelin sounded sportier and would have a better chance with customs.  I thinned the blade to almost a cutting edge leaving the flats flat.  Then gave it a secondary bevel to finish the edge.  I had planned on mounting it on a 1” x 6’ red oak staff but the vendor was out at the time and my freight forwarder gave me a price on a 5’ staff of $75 leaving me to guess at the 6’ price.  This was on top of the staff’s price and domestic shipping.  So I removed my Chinese hooked spear head and mounted the javelin head on a 6’ single tapered rattan staff which is surprisingly stiff.  The finished spear is 79” and balances well without a counter weight on the butt.  It is fast and penetrates well.  I am very happy with my new spear.

A nice solid piece that will endure in battle. Craft the correct diameter of a pole, insert tightly and expect success.

Looks great I just should have read to measurements but it is still worth it
From: Jeff, March 10, 2016
Very impressive. Just what I was hoping for, but I can't find a long enough length of 7/8" dowel for the shaft. Have you considered offering 7/8" and 1-1/4" X 6' dowels?
From: Scott, July 10, 2015
Appears very good quality. Did not have a chance to mount on shaft yet. Sharpened them up. Held a nice edge. So far very pleased.
From: Joseph, May 28, 2015
I have ordered two and will order one more to complete my Thracian javelin set. The javelin head is the perfect weight and size!

Used as throwing weapons and as pikes, spears were an indispensable part of their daily routine. This Viking spear is hand forged of a tough, high carbon steel by Windlass Steelcrafts®. Pole not included.
$36.00

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. High carbon steel blade. Slim and attractive, it is just the spear to carry on your next medieval outing. Pole not included with hewing spear. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®.
$39.00

Butt Cap for Greek Spear

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. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.
