Historical Information HERE.
The spear is one of the oldest and most universal weapons known to
mankind. Used in hunting and in war, this tool has many variations
across time and cultures. In European tradition, spears were typically
6-7 feet long, though longer spears were also used -- up to 12 feet, or
the more specialized pike at a length of 16-20 feet.
Many spears had an iron buttspike on the reverse
end. When receiving cavalry charges, spearmen would use the spike to
anchor the weapon in the ground.
spears use the same highest quality staves as our other staff products.
We typically offer 6-8 foot shaft lengths. Our PHA Spear Tip is not only
a visually accurate training tool, but also provides considerable flex
and impact absorption on a thrust. This allows for greater training
safety, though armor and protective gear are still required for use with
this training weapon.
The round blunt makes for an excellent buttspike, suitable for use on most indoor training surfaces.
