For 200 years, the boar spear reigned supreme as the staff weapon of choice in the European forests and often on the battlefield as well. Only the invention of reliable firearms in the 18th century was able to fade its renown. This hunting spear would have disappeared altogether if not for the decadent tastes of the Northern European nobility: To the gentry, hunting with a firearm was a pale substitute for the thrill of hand-to-hand combat in the forest with nothing but a spear.
You too can enjoy the same excitement with Cold Steel's modern reproduction of this classic spear. Cold-forged out of medium SK-5 carbon steel and heat-treated to a spring temper, the massive spearhead is designed to flex under stress instead of breaking. It is sharpened to a good utility edge and features a sturdy reinforcing rib to make it as stiff as possible for maximum penetration.
The boar spear comes complete with a stout premium ash shaft and a Secure-Ex® sheath.
