Description of the Product
Winged or lugged spears were originally used by Frankish warriors and these were popular with the Vikings also. Besides hanging your banner when marching into war the wings could also be used to block, push, hit with, to control the weapons of your opponent and even hook the shield or legs of your opponent. These winged spears later evolved into medieval polearms when the wings were replaced by hooks, spikes and hammerheads making these even more versatile weapons.
