Hand-forged sometime between the 9th and 11th centuries A.D., this stunning Viking spearhead is one of the most beautifully shaped spearheads that we have had the pleasure to acquire.
With a socket diameter in excess of 22mm, it is likely that this piece represents a small 'Gar' spear, used as a thrusting spear, or thrown at close quarters. However, what really sets this spearhead off is its beautiful, perfectly symmetrical leaf-shaped blade, giving it an almost mythical/Elven appearance!
Mounted on oak and textured steel, and measuring over 23cm in length, this amazing historical artefact could be yours to own today. Provided with printed documentation.
