Merry Axemass and Happy New Spear 2023!

Merry Axemass  and Happy New Spear to all! It's that time of year when all are hoping they are on the nice list and dropping hints about their need for a new spear or axe. We will do our best to help all those Santas helpers and have a great deal on our Norseman Spear and Nordland Axe now through Dec 15th.

Our Nordland Axe is a great all around piece that can be used on the trail or for the perfect belt axe on a reenactment weekend. Several of our customers also use these for throwing for fun and competition. 

For the gift wrap challenge the Norseman Spear can be one of the tough ones to disguise what it is, but there is always a happy smile on the person opening the gift as they just got a great medieval spear

Norseman Spear

This is a great spear for hand to hand combat, throwing and hanging decorations high up including the tree topper!

Ac Spear is a useful tool.

"look everyone I can put the angel on even with the cat in my hands!"

These spears have hardened point and edges. They are mounted on ash hafts that are six foot in length. Whether dark age warrior or medieval soldier, this excellent spear will fill out your kit or if you are looking for just the right accent for a viking cruise, you can't go wrong with this awesome spear.

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.
