For 200 years, the boar spear reigned supreme as the hunting tool of choice in the dark forests of Europe, and made many appearances on the battlefield as well. It's distinctive wide leaf shaped blade and dual cutting edges cut and thrust with equal capability and the sturdy cross quillons kept danger (whether four legged or otherwise!) at bay! Cold Steel’s modern recreation of this classic spear is cold forged out of medium carbon SK-5 steel and heat treated to a spring temper, flexing under stress rather than breaking. The Boar Spear comes complete with a heavyweight American Ash shaft and a sturdy Secure-Ex Sheath.
