Useful for hunting and battle, medieval spears were popular among peasants and nobles for their relative ease of use, light weight, and ability to attack targets at a distance. At Buying a Sword, we have both functional and decorative spears. Functional spears are formed from a long shaft and pointed head, and they can be thrusted or thrown depending on the design. In this category you will also find other similar pole weapons like scythes, javelins, assegai, corseques, fauchards, voluges, military forks, and glaives. We not only carry medieval spears, but we also offer a range of other historical pole arms of Roman origin. Some of our decorative historical spears are inspired by various media. We also offer a number of spear heads for attaching to your own shaft and creating your own DIY spear. Decorative spears are great as collectibles for weapons enthusiasts, reenactment props, ceremonial purposes, and even theater use. Our functional spears are ideal for reenactment. Take a moment to peruse our selection, and you can find a number of great spear options here.
