Description

Nordic warriors once carried several light throwing spears with them into a battle. This Viking Throwing Spear exhibits the narrow . sharply pointed head designed to pierce mail. It is possible to carry several speaks in the shield hand in a battle. As the distance closed . warriors would throw their spears. A sword or axe was then used in hand-to-hand combat. The Vikings' creative combination of art and war is evident in the decorated spearhead. Viking weapons often displayed intricate patters created using the "Niello" process. An alloy of several metals (notably silver) mixed with sulfur was rubbed into an incised patter and then fired to create a design. The location of the alloy remains black while the rest of the surface is polished for a clean finish. Today's decorating process is more technological but t still provides a lustrous permanent Niello-like effect. A suitable shaft is best found as with the originals in the wild.
