The spear is one of man’s oldest, reliable weapons. Early examples were no more than sticks or poles with fire hardened points, but as man learned how to knap flint cast bronze and forge metals, spears quickly evolved. With modern cold-forging - a process pioneered by Cold Steel - we are now able to offer high performance modern spears at affordable prices. Our Zulu Assegai [as-uh-gahy] are made from SK-5 medium carbon steel, heat treated and drawn to a tough spring temper, and designed to flex or bend under impact forces rather than breaking or shattering. The Assegai blade is available with a choice of two different premium American Ash shafts (A shorter model for thrusting or a full length throwing shaft), and comes complete with a durable Secure-Ex® sheath.
