CS92BKPB: Samburu Spear, Black
Cold Steel
Samburu Spears

The Samburu tribe who inhabit Kenya's rugged northern frontier are a tall, lean people who eke out a living as semi-nomadic herders of sheep, goats, donkeys, camels and cattle.

The warriors of the tribe known as "Lmurran" are particularly impressive, as they never cut their long braided hair and decorate their faces and torsos in beautifully intricate patterns using a cosmetic mixture made from animal fat and red ochre.

Since their flocks and herds are constantly menaced by predators and subject to raids by lawless "Shiftas" (bandits) from Somalia, they seldom venture outside their "Kraals" (a kind of makeshift hut) without being thoroughly armed.

In fact, no warrior worthy of his name would think of being caught without his spears. You see, the Samburu warrior's seven foot long throwing spear is the most advanced, state of the art spear of its type on the planet. With this extraordinary spear, warriors routinely dispatch marauding leopards, lions and even firearm toting bandits at unheard of distances.

Each of our Samburu spears break down into three components: The first is the spear head itself, permanently welded to a thick steel shaft. Second is the counter balancing butt spike also known as the shoe. This is used as an alternative point for practice throwing, preserving the actual spear blade itself for more serious work. Third is the black, hardwood handle with a double taper connecting the head and shoe.

The Samburu spears come unassembled for ease of transportation. All you have to do is fit the blade and butt spike tightly to the handle and attach them with the provided retaining screws. They come complete with a Secure-Ex® sheath.

These spears could be described as the 300 Winchester Magnum of the spear world. They can be used at long range, fly straight, have a flat trajectory, hit hard and penetrate deep. Like the 300 Win Mag, they can be used to take any animal in North America.

NOTE: We've made our Samburu spears as tough as possible. However, if you bend your spear shaft or "shoe" (butt spike), it can be easily straightened in a vise or with a hammer, and the tough hickory handle of your spear can eventually break, so please be prepared to replace it.

Also available in Satin.

What else could you need?
I had this model and the smallest version some years back. I gave them to a good friend when my change in residence made me downsize, but I never forgot them or their astonishing diversity. Having hunted hogs for most of my life, I can say with the confidence of long experience that once I came into possession of the full-sized Samburu spear, I was pretty upset that it hadn't been available all the wasted years before Cold Steel offered it. Now so you know, I took the sole spike off and hafted the point to a 4-foot oak shaft, but then that is where the magic happened. I realized that a seven-foot-long piece of ash with a heavy steel blade on the end was extraneous. You cut the weight down by 50%, and I absolutely loved its fast action and deadly penetration. If you use the Samburu to hunt a hog, you don't need to hang on to the spear; it goes all the way through, the hog doesn't go very far. As for self defense, someone taking a spear from you that has a greased, 2-foot steel shaft as the business end is impossible. This is the best designed spear I have ever used. It's light, you get it back every time, and it can transfix a 500lb animal from its chest to the exit chute. Plus, it breaks down small enough to fit in a bow quiver. I was not sorry to buy mine, and from Knifecenter they're cheaper now than they were new ten years ago. You can't afford not to own one, if you have room.

Pros: Materials, Finish, Handle Material, Head Material, Overall Quality, Usability
Cons: None
The wood handle is meant to break, this is a sacrificial handle meant to break in order to prevent damage to the spear as the game animal crashes through brush and other obstacles that might of otherwise bent the spear rendering it unusable on later hunts.

Cons: Handle Material, Overall Quality
Not up to the task
Pull it out of the package put it together and everything looks great. Start throwing it around and the wood shaft snaps on a light throw. I see why they paint it black. The wood grain is almost perpendicular to the long axis of the spear. I feel cold steels quality has gone down hill over the years and this spear was the last straw for me. If you buy the spear be prepared to replace the wood upon arrival.
