Viking Spears, Viking Throwing Spears, War Spear and Viking Thrusting Spears
Like the axe, the spear was a popular weapon among Viking warriors. It was easy to build and repair and took far less metal to make than a sword, while still being a huge threat when wielded by a warrior with some skill. At Dark Knight Armoury, we carry a whole host of Viking spears for you to choose from, so that you can arm yourself just like a true Viking might have, all those many years ago. Traditionally, a Viking spear was used alongside a shield and was either used to thrust or thrown at an enemy. Outside of battle, Viking spears were also used to hunt, to help a warrior provide for his family. In terms of design, the Viking spear was offered in a few different styles. Short-bladed and long bladed spear heads were used for thrusting and fighting, and longer spear blades were often as effective at cutting as they were at thrusting. The throwing spears had a different head, made with a longer, finer point to allow for better penetration and a more steady flight. At Dark Knight Armoury, we offer full-length Viking spears as well as individual spear heads. And of course, we carry a wooden stave for building your ideal spear too. So if you find yourself wanting a great Viking weapon, you could not ask for more than a good, solid spear to carry at your side.
