This medieval Spear (or dart if you like) was commonly used by light infantry groups. They were the distinctive weapons of the Spanish Almogavars (class of soldiers from the Crown of Aragon) against the Muslims occupying the country in the 13th-14th C. This piece in particular is based on an original dated circa 1200, found at Alcoy in the community of Valencia (Spain) and has similarities with African weapons of different age, which may mean to be the a Muslim weapon. This hurled light weapons were widely used by foot troops, horse soldiers and even by horse soldiers, as documented in period chronicles.

Advisory Service: Questions and Answers

What is the difference between industrially rolled and hand-forged blades?

In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
