Buying a Sword is proud to offer this fantastic array of spear heads. We have a great selection in various styles, including ancient Greek and medieval styles. They include both pointed and blunted blades. Some are fully functional while others work better for decorative use. We also offer spear butt caps. These caps help to protect the bottom of the shaft on a spear. Our spear parts come in a variety of colors and finishes. For example, some have a rough or natural finish. These spear heads make great DIY items as well as collectible display pieces. Take a moment to browse, and you are sure to find something that will interest you.
