This large spearhead or lance head is crafted from tempered EN45 high carbon steel and suitable for Viking Age and Middle Ages settings (10th/11th c. – Type K/M according to Petersen).
It is approx. 52 cm (20.5 in.) long, has approx. 29 cm (11.4 in.) long edges, and the blade, which strongly tapers from a broad base to a long, narrow point, is reinforced with a distinctive, raised ridge along its centre line for extra rigidity and greater piercing power. Two pre-drilled holes allow it to be secured onto the wooden staff of your choice to create your own Viking / medieval spear or lance. The haft and additional mounting hardware are not included in the delivery.
Alternatively, collectors may purchase our wooden spearhead stand (available separately, product no. 1816375000) to display their treasures in style in their armoury.
Please note that this spearhead is primarily designed as a collectible, decoration piece or prop and by no means suited for combat re-enactment! The blade’s point is not rounded, and the edges are not sharpened, yet slightly ground (with suitable equipment and the necessary know-how and skills, they may be ground to sharpness if needed).
