shinwa double edge carbon steel warrior spear tan
I love the guard,the brown wrap is a nice change from black.My spear is sharp from point about 8 Down,can cut paper fine.The pole is light don't think it would brackunless aboused.If throwen correctly will be fine.Don't know how long the tang goes into the pole at guard if it is just glued on at the guarg and doesn't go into the pole some length then that would be a problem.the spear is glued into the area at guard but again juest don't know how far the tang goes into shaft at guard.anyway if had to ues it and tang isn't as should be it still would be good for one good through, and if throughen right would stick in it's target atleast one time eaven if brok off in target, like for slef defence.overall looks great

Quality Budget Spear
Was happy package came a day early than arrival time on ups. Spear is a very light but strong hardwood that has significant flex. Feels very nimble, I'm about 6 3'' and it comes up to about my neck. Spear head is heavy and all the fittings are nice and tight. Tsuba matches my shinwa regal tan katana but the ito wrapping is a darker brown and not so tan. edges of my spear tip are dull but can be sharpened. Because of the stock handle i don't think i would recommend that, although it can be swung around and is great for piercing i think you can run the risk of snapping the handle matterial with a misplaced slash which could be dangerous. If you are looking for something different to compliment a collection or want to do some fun practice and get familiar with a spear i would recommend this as a good item for the price.
