EN45 High Carbon Steel
4 lb 13.6 oz

This Roman Spear has an head of high carbon steel; it is mounted and pinned to the hardwood haft with a trio of screws. The butt spike is steel - like the head it is secured with screws.

Although the Gladius is the iconic weapon of Rome’s military might, the Roman military certainly made use of the humble, but effective spear. The Triarii of Rome’s Republican Legions were equipped with them and the later Roman Empire often outfitted Auxiliary infantry with spears. By the late Roman Empire spears become yet more common as a weapon for the Roman infantryman.

For Roman Legionaries of the Empire there are references to them using their pilum as makeshift spears to deal with cavalry when the situation called for it, but even a pilum is not an optimal substitute for a dedicated melee spear with a larger haft and greater reach - thus even in the middle years of the Empire the Roman forces would want spear-equipped soldiers ready at hand to counter cavalry or to guard against cavalry flanking maneuvers.
