Spearheads like this were used from the early Middle Ages to the Renaissance. This type of spearhead is quite nasty. Originally they were actually intended for hunting, when the spear was thrown at a boar, the spearhead dug into the skin and the wings prevented it from being easily removed. This principle was also applied in warfare.
This spearhead is supplied without a shaft. It is perfect for reconstructions of Vikings, Normans, fifteenth century etc.

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.
