Product Details

Zulu War Assegai Spear

These are high quality replicas of the Zulu Assegai spear.

The Assegai spear was, according to many, designed by the legendary Zulu King, Shaka and was said to have revolutionised tribal warfare in South Africa in the early 1800s (some have since dismissed this claim and have instead accredited the Iklwa Spear to Shaka). The Assegai spear became iconic after its use in the Zulu war of 1879. The Assegai is a light "javelin like" spear used for throwing during combat. With the entire spear weighing just 400 grams and measuring in at approximately 115cm, it really would have been an ideal throwing weapon with large distances covered easily. The high quality, steel spear head takes up just over a 3rd of the entire length, itself measuring 40cm. The shaft is made of quality wood and is wrapped in a stained black leather "handle" (approx. 15cm) just beneath the head, which would have been where the spear was held when throwing.

These are beautifully crafted replicas of the Zulu Assegai spear and would be ideal for any enthusiast or collector.
