Viking Short Spear


We accept :- Payment buttons

The spear was the most common weapon in Saxon and Scandinavian warfare. It was cheaper and required less skill to produce than a sword. It held great cultural significance to the Viking warrior as it was the primary weapon of Odin, king of the Norse gods.

Spears were used by the peasant and warrior class alike and played a key role in Viking formations and tactics. The Vikings used spears for thrusting and throwing, the latter being less common as there was no guarantee you would get it back! 

Spear design varies slightly, but all spears are hafted on a part-charred and waxed 1m long 30mm diameter Ash Hardwood handle and the heads are hand-peened.
