The main weapon of the medieval period was the spear, not only for peasants but also for professional soldiers and even the noblemen. The spear was more effective at downing a charging wild boar because the blade created a wider, more lethal wound. It was equally as effective in battle, ripping holes in chainmail and armour. The spear is a relatively low in cost compared to a sword or axe. A medieval spear was relatively easy to use and very light in weight. Spears could also be quickly manufactured and can be used at a considerable distance from the target or enemy. We have Viking spears, Roman spears, thrusting spears, boar spears, throwing spears, assegai spears, and spearheads. All our medieval spears are fully functional and very durable for hunting, fishing or re-enactments.
Spears were often a mainstay in a medieval army, although in close quarters combat, a six-foot long spear could become more than unwieldy. That is why there were spears, like this Guard Spear, which excelled at a much shorter range.
