You can fasten this butt cap to the back of a shaft. It is specially made for Greek spears. The butt cap protects the shaft from splintering and damage. Additionally, it gives the spear more balance. The Greeks used the butt cap as a spare spearhead when the primary spearhead broke off. With this butt cap you can also put your spear in the ground.

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.
