Spears were commonplace in Greek armies. They were the typical weapon of the hoplite, the soldier of ancient Greece. But no spear was more feared than the Spartan Spear, likely because of the already fearsome fighting prowess of the Spartans. The Dory is the style of spear used by Grecian hoplites, a spear of approximately six to ten feet in length with a flat, leaf-shaped blade used for thrusting and slashing. This spear does not disappoint. A staggeringly tall weapon, this spear is simply made but deadly and efficient. Indeed, the leaf-shaped blade would work as well for sweeping cuts as it would for devastating thrusts. A suede-leather wrap sits just above the center of the black shaft, a grip to hold while carrying or using the weapon. The bottom is capped with a butt-spike of significant size, making it not only an effective counterbalance to the weight of the over-six-foot spear but a secondary end to use for striking, should the need arise. Additionally, this spear separates into two pieces for ease of storing or moving. Lethally effective and radically simple - that is the Spartan Spear, and this is the weapon that made Spartan phalanxes so deadly.
Please be aware that this weapon comes in two pieces and requires some assembly.
