The spear is one of the world’s most ancient weapons. It was a dominant presence on the field of battle for an amazingly long period of time. This particular blade form was put to use during a wide range of European history by a wide range of different cultures, from Ancient Celts and Greeks to well through the Medieval and Renaissance periods.
This pointed steel butt cap is one of the best available to buy in the UK. It protects the shaft of your spear against splitting apart and at the same time, provides a counterweight for extremely good spear balance. It can also be used as a weapon in case your spear breaks in the middle. This idea is attributed to the Greeks, but it is not documented.
