Product information "Short-Bladed Viking Spearhead, ornate socket"
The Viking short-bladed spear is typical of those of Celtic origin imported into Scandinavia. The short blade, inherently stiffer and more resistant to bending or breaking, was capable of piercing any body armour of the period.
Hanwei's decorated spearheads, designed by Paul Chen, demonstrate the Vikings' creative mix of art and war, whereby weapons often carried intricate patterns which were created by using the niello process. This involved using an alloy of several metals (notably silver) mixed with sulfur, which was rubbed into an incised pattern and then fired. Where the alloy had been rubbed into the engravings, it would remain black, while the rest of the surface would be polished to a bright finish. The decorating process used at Hanwei involves a little less alchemy but still provides a lustrous, permanent niello-like effect.
Only spearhead supplied (without shaft).
This spearhead is cast hollow and therefore not suitable for functional use.
