    Not for hunting

    By Bigperm71

    About Me Recreational Archer

    Pros

    • Its cheap

    Cons

    • Breaks Easily
    • Broke on first use

    Best Uses

    • Decorative

    Comments about Socketed Hunting Spearhead:

    This item was just put on a shaft and taken outside. My son who the gift was for took it outside after it was constructed. The spear fell to the ground and the blade seperated from the shaft point. Stay away from this if you intend to use it for hunting. Might be good to hang on the wall, but nothing else.

    Comments about Socketed Hunting Spearhead:

    This spearhead is excellent for modification into a historically accurate viking spearhead of the Petersen type A leaf shape. It also has a stamped makers mark "PAKISTAN" on the socket that you'd need to grnd off, but that's pretty easy. As easy as honing an edge on it in the first place. If you do modify it you need cooling during the grinding or you'll lose the temper and ruin the spear.

    As a weapon, the edge has a high temper and will take and keep a razor sharp edge. The tip could be more springy but would simulate very well historical iron core spears with a welded in high carbon steel edge. What I mean here is that the tip bends to high stess, such as sticking the spear forcefully into a large tree log, and will keep being slightly bent. This isn't a bad thing and I expect an intentional feature from manufacturing, an intentional hunters feature so it won't break when hitting heavy bone but bend and slip. You can re-straighten it easily with a rubber mallet or in the woods I guess you could use piece of firewood or stone.

    The blade has a beautiful hollow diamond grind, the edge has a high temper and the intersection of the blade and socket is decently thick unlike most other historical looking spearheads being sold. One down side is that the weld of the socket seam isn't all the way through, on the other hand better to fail there with ultimate stress than somewhere on the blade. If it does break at the seam one can just iron wire wrap it and keep using it. Note that mine didn't break from repeated thrusting and sticking deep in a large log. So it can't be that much of a problem really.

    Highly recommendeed. You won't find any other similar produtc in this price range coming even close. If you want a stiffer spear that won't bend, I'd recommend the cold steel boar or asegai spear instead which are also excellent, but they have a modern stamped plate construction with just one side and doesnt look right for re-enactment use.

    PLease note: The photos I've added are from after modfication, with stamp removed and leaf shape grind.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Amazing delivery service!
    It was so fast and easy I couldn't believe it was the 3 rivers package that was there already for local post office pickup when I got the slip in the mail after just 3 days. Ordering processing and overseas shipping from america to Europe in that short time is just incredible! That's faster than local companies get their products out.

    Thank you very much 3 Rivers. ;)

    Not a throwing spear

    By JoeBob

    from Illinois

    Pros

      Cons

      • NOT for throwing

      Best Uses

        Comments about Socketed Hunting Spearhead:

        I bought one of these, was practicing throwing it, and it quickly broke at the joint of blade/socket. Exchanged it, and the same thing happened to the second, so I gave up on it as I don't have a use for a spear I can't throw.

        Service and delivery comments:

        Fast shipping, easy exchange, good service.

          I use spears for self defence against Bear or Cougar attacks while bowhunting since I hunt alone ... and I don't trust the pepper sprays ... I have another spear head that doesnt even compare to this one ... its hella tough and good design.
