The Samburu Spear, is based on a design used by the Samburu tribe from Kenya's northern frontier. It is perhaps the most advanced spear of its type on the planet. With this extraordinary spear, warriors routinely dispatch marauding leopards, lions and even firearm toting bandits at unheard of distances. The Samburu spear breaks down into three components. First is the spear head itself which measures 7" long by 2" wide and is permanently welded to a 3/8" thick by 23" long steel shaft. Second is the counter balancing butt spike also known as the shoe. This is used as an alternative point for practice throwing, preserving the actual spear blade itself for more serious work. Third is the black, hardwood handle with a double taper connecting the head and shoe. Each Samburu spear comes unassembled for ease of transportation. All you have to do is fit the blade and butt spike tightly to the Penetration. Includes Secure-Ex sheath.
