The Javelin, a short spear, is a one handed weapon used for throwing. The javelin is one of the oldest weapons dating back more than 400,000 years. Traditionally used in hunting, the javelin was adapted as a weapon of war in ancient Egypt. This spear had a variety of functions in European armies. This spear was adapted by the Zulu in Africa which created the fabled Zulu Iklwa spear used by Shaka, the legendary Zulu leader who use a short spear for stabbing. In Norse mythodolgy, Odin, father of Thor, carried a javelin known as Gungnir. This spear is 36” long and comes with a leather sheath.
The scimitar sword is made from Pattern welded Damascus steel. Pattern welded Damascus steel scimitar is a hard heat treated, folded carbon steel. There are 11 pieces of steel, folded five times, making 352 layers. The steel is the perfect combination of hardness and durability with a Rockwell hardness rating between 55 and 56 HRC. High carbon damascus steel must contain layers of high carbon steel. The high carbon steel we use is 1095 steel which is the highest content carbon steel used in swords. The combination of the steel layers creates a sword that is strong enough to hold a powerful edge while having the strength and flexibility to withstand powerful collisions. This makes the perfect steel for swords. The handle is bone and horn with Damascus steel bolsters. It comes with a leather sheath.

Have looked at acquiring for a year
It's fun....light, well made, a value for the price
The sheath is even quality
A great buy
This is a pretty sick piece of art. Really nice blade even though it is not battle ready. I really wish I had an option to order one battle ready.
