This is a very lethal looking spear with nasty barbs sprouting out of the shaft. It is hardwood and has been given a coat of lacquer or similar rather recently I think for protection or to spruce it up.The bindings are black twine rather than woven although it has a nice woven hand grip in centre. I suppose this was either a fighting spear or maybe used for pig hunting. Measures 5 foot 2" in length.
