Although we do not know the exact form and shape of the Viking hewing spear, we do know that they were used. Hank Reinhardt designed this spear based on his own experience. This Long Bladed Hewing Spear is one that would thrust effectively, and yet, have the power to cut decisively. High carbon steel blade. Slim and attractive, it is just the spear to carry on your next medieval outing. Pole not included.

I mated this blade with a rounded chape, a wax wood haft wrapped it in red leather. It is a seriously cool weapon, though it's hard to tell until you actually heft it. The shape or sarouter is heavy enough to give it good balance, and though intended to be used two-handed, it's pretty handy with one. It's strong and flexible and holds an edge very well, as my poor fingers have learned only too well.
