Our decorated spearheads demonstrate the Viking’s creative mix of art and war, whereby weapons often carried intricate patterns, created using the “Niello” process. This involved using an alloy of several metals (notably silver) mixed with sulfur which was rubbed into an incised pattern and then fired. Where the alloy is rubbed into the engraving, it remains black while the rest of the surface is polished to a bright finish. At Hanwei the decorating process uses a little less alchemy, but still provides a lustrous, permanent Niello-like effect. Each spearhead has a shaft diameter of 1”, spearheads only are supplied. The Nordic warrior frequently carried several light Throwing Spears into combat. This style displays the narrow, sharply pointed head designed to pierce mail. Several spears might be carried in the shield hand in a charge. These were thrown as the distance closed, leaving the warrior free to use his sword or axe in hand-to-hand fighting.
Total head length is 16 ¼”.Note: This spear head is cast hollow, and therefore not suitable for functional use.

When one sword is just not enough - Nihonzashi
Sherry & Mike Femal,
Sherry and Mike started Nihonzashi in 2006 so their students of Toyama Ryu would have a consistent supply of uniforms, swords and tatami mats. We have enjoyed growing the business to what it is today and are proud to be known worldwide for our custom products and services. Sherry and Mike created and custom make all of the gekken swords we ship around the world. Also, Mike is fulfiling his dream of expanding his custom weapons to include knives. We look forward to what the future brings and what new creations are on the horizon.
