We have got a quick addition for your sack full of gifts today. So if you have any room left amongst all the axes you collected with our Merry Axemass Special why not slide in one of our Celtic Spears at a special price of 165.00 till the 15th of Dec.
This is a great spear for throwing as well as hand to hand combat over the last cookie on the platter. It is also quite handy for getting the tree topper on the very top!
"look everyone I can put the angel on even with the cat in my hands!"
These have a hardened point and edge. They are mounted on ash hafts and riveted in place. They are just the thing for filling out the kit of many different periods of medieval history.
Also, kids, if you have been badly behaved this year and do not want to end up in Krampus's basket, we heartily suggest a spear or axe may well help. Of course this just applies in case you have been naughty the rest of you can buy them for fun. Remember he only gets to use birch branches.
