A spear is a pole weapon consisting of a shaft, usually of wood, with a pointed head.
The head may be simply the sharpened end of the shaft itself, as is the case with bamboo spears, or it may be made of a more durable material fastened to the shaft, such as flint, obsidian, iron, steel or bronze.
The most common design for hunting or combat spears since ancient times has incorporated a metal spearhead shaped like a barbed triangle, lozenge or leaf. The heads of fishing spears usually feature barbs or serrated edges.
Spears can be divided into two broad categories: those designed for thrusting and those designed for throwing. #spaer #spear #speer #spere #sphere #spier #spiere
