The most common and important weapon wielded by a Viking warrior was the Norse spear. Viking spears typically feature metal spear heads attached to wooden shafts of 6 to 10 feet long. The head of a Viking warrior spear was about 7 to 24 inches long with a tendency towards longer heads in the late Viking age. Some of the Norse spear heads had wings called krokspjot, or a barbed spear. Viking warriors used their war spears for throwing and thrusting with one hand.
