Description:The spear was the most commonly used weapon in the Viking age. Compared to a sword, the spear can be made with inferior steel and far less metal overall. This made the weapon cheaper and probably within the capability of a common blacksmith to produce. Despite this, the spear held great cultural significance to the Viking warrior, as the primary weapon of Odin, the king of the Norse gods and the god of warfare, was the spear Gungnir. In Norse mythology, Gungnir in Old Norse means "swaying one". This spear head is made to be mounted on a pole of your choosing. Traditionally spear heads like this were mounted on an ash wood pole. This head comes in a lozenge shaped and is hand forged of iron. The sides are edged but can be sharpened more to your liking. The weathered finish makes this piece look like it has been transported back from in time. There is also a hole on the shaft to nail or screw the spear onto a pole.
