CIXH2039: Viking Throwing Spear
CAS Hanwei

The decorated spearheads demonstrate the Viking’s creative mix of art and war, whereby weapons often carried intricate patterns, created using the “Niello” process. This involved using an alloy of several metals (notably silver) mixed with sulfur which was rubbed into an incised pattern and then fired. Where the alloy is rubbed into the engraving, it remains black while the rest of the surface is polished to a bright finish. Our decorating process uses a little less alchemy, but still provides a lustrous, permanent Niello-like effect. Each spearhead has a shaft diameter of 1”. Spearheads only are supplied.

The Nordic warrior frequently carried several light Throwing Spears into combat. This style displays the narrow, sharply pointed head designed to pierce mail. Several spears might be carried in the shield hand in a charge. These were thrown as the distance closed, leaving the warrior free to use his sword or axe in hand-to-hand fighting. Total head length is 16 ¼”.
Note: This spear head is cast hollow, and therefore not suitable to functional use.

I have received my paul chen throwing spear head. I have mounted it on a new yellow pine shaft and will kill my first boar with it. It looks great in the house. Thank you for your efforts to get this item to me.

Well balanced, and a scary point.
I was surprised at the size, but in a good way. It has a very narrow profile, I am sure back in the day it would have been perfect for armor piercing. Throwing it into a log and trying to pull straight out is impossible, you have to wiggle it out after a good throw. I did not like the temper though, it bends fairly easily. For the most part I fixed that though, I tempered the tip myself, you have to be very abusive to bend it now. Lost it's shine from the tempering but performance matters more to me than display.
