This is a generic style of spear head suitable for most historical periolds and is also suitable for battle re-enactments and martial arts. The tip is rounded and has a bulbous tip for safely.
This blunted spearhead, intended for stage combat has a thick, blunt blade with a rebated tip crafted from high carbon EN45 steel. The tapered socket has a split to allow it to expand slightly to ensure a tight fit into a tapered wooden pole. The diameter of the socket measures approximately 1 – it varies slightly based on the handcrafted nature of this spear head.
The spearhead is available in 4 sizes - 30 cm, 35 cm, 40 cm and 45 cm but because of supply issues we may not be able to stock all the sizes at the same time.
The spear is a deceptively deadly weapon, for though it lacks the long blade edge of the sword or the cleaving powers of the axe, the spear is a thrusting weapon, and thrusting wounds, while less impressive than slashing or cleaving blows, are often more deadly. Spear wounds can strike deep, often hitting vital organs and creating deep wounds with large amounts of internal bleeding that is difficult or impossible to dress and treat. The long shaft not only gives the spearman reach, but its mass and leverage ensure that the strike hits with substantial force.
