In stock


Used as throwing weapons and pikes, spears were an indispensable part of every Northman's gear, whether he was Norwegian, Dane, Swede, Finn, or Icelander. In fact, some of the earliest Viking proverbs admonished men to always have their spears within an inch's reach in case of an unforeseen threat.  Hand-forged of tough, high carbon steel by the master armorers at Windlass Steelcrafts. The wings prevented the spear from penetrating too deep for easy retrieval. It can be mounted on a wooden dowel from your local hardware or home supply store.

Serious Spear Head
I wanted to make a real spear that could be used as a main weapon or a throwing spear at close range (because of the weight of the ash pole).  I also knew that the Norse were mostly armed with spears and not swords, so I wanted to see how wielding a Viking type spear would be.  This spear head is perfect for thrusting, cutting, and with a metal end piece, for use as a quarter staff in combat.  The winged part helps keep the spear from going too far into an opponent's body and also acts as a small hook for possibly dismounting someone by pulling back on the spear. It fit the ash pole very well and I am very pleased with it.  I recommend staining the pole after beveling it to fit the spear head so that it will resist rot inside the metal enclosure.
