True Roman Spearheads For True Roman Javelins

Step into the sandals of the Velites, the iconic soldier of the Roman Auxilia, with this Roman javelin head, fighting for the survival of Rome and the glory of your legion. Starting with the craftsmanship, this Roman pilum head pays homage to the ingenuity and skill of ancient blacksmiths, restored with modern-day techniques.

Featuring a wide and sharpened triangular point, this Roman spearhead is ready for any practical demonstrations or reenactments. Furthermore, a hole near the end of the socket allows this javelin spear tip to be fastened securely to most spear hafts. This spear is functional for staged combat and reenactments.

Not to mention, this makes assembling your ideal spear straightforward and adaptable. Please note, the rivet is not included. Likewise, this spear end caps off any haft with a solid build and impressive length of 9.5 inches. Whether you’re restoring an old haft or creating a new one, this steel spear tip will fit seamlessly.

For the Republic!

Emblematic of the Roman Auxiliary Cohorts, the Velites were light infantry that played crucial roles in the formations of the Early to Late Roman Republic. Owning this Roman spear piece connects you to the strategic might and flexibility of Rome’s ruthless war machine.

Also, the thin neck along the length of this spearhead allowed for javelins to be thrown and deliberately bend when striking a shield, weighing the shield down and depriving the enemy of his primary defense. This design not only reflects historical accuracy but also demonstrates the tactical genius of Roman military technology through its capacity for serious damage.

Whether you throw it or wield it in hand-to-hand combat, you should treat this steel javelin head as a formidable force and handle it with the utmost respect and care. To clarify, we do not recommend using this spear tip in SCA or heavy medieval combat, and urge handling it with extreme caution during reenactments or demonstrations.
