The socket of this winged spearhead is decorated with eight shallow groves: two short ones above each wing and two longer ones at the other two sides.
A Winged Spearhead is a special form of lance that has two wing-shaped-overhangs on the socket. It has been used since the early Middle Ages to about 1200 and served primarily as a war weapon, but was probably also used for hunting of wild boars. As early as in the 10th Century under the rule of the Ottonian dynasty the lance (winged spear) got a representative function equal to the sword. From this time comes the legend about the Holy Lance, which has been granted a key role in the victory at the Battle of Lechfeld. Numerous of illustrations of guards with winged-lances come from these times and support this thesis.
The production of chain mail armor requires a lot of human handiwork. We were affected by an important fact that also changed the rules in many other industries. The labor costs of European workers far exceed the labor costs in Asia, even if you take into account the transport costs from Asia! For this simple reason, in the EU there are no workshops that manufacture chain mail armor professionally - and we are working with professionals only! Hobby-producers, who occasionally work in their garages, do not fit into our business concept. We are very sorry; we cannot make for you any mail armor made-to-your measure. Some re-enactors found a solution for this situation: they buy our imported standard-sized mail shirts (sometimes oversize or several pieces), unravel them and make tailor-made mail shirts, legs and other armor parts by themselves.
