If weapons celebrated Throwback Thursdays, the spear would get an easy 5,000 Likes. Archaeological evidence indicates that wooden spears have been used for hunting since at least 400,000 years ago. With the Cold Steel Assegai Spear, you can pay homage to this ancient weapon, while also being prepared for any escaped rhinoceros incidents at the local zoo.

Based on the design introduced by the Zulu King Shaka in the early 1800s, the Cold Steel Assegai Spear is made with sophisticated manufacturing techniques led – literally and figuratively – by a sharp 13.3-inch head that’s cold forged from SK-5 medium carbon steel. Like traditional spearheads, Cold Steel’s are heat treated and then drawn to a tough spring temper. Combined that head with the included premium American Ash shaft, and you’ve got 6 feet and 9.5 inches of spear to throw, or just grace your walls with. [Purchase]
