I bought three of these paualcritrly because I wanted to learn a flat throw. And they are great. Because I throw 3 at a time, the cord wrap was cut by other knives pretty quickly. It has a leather wrap under the cord that I discarded and duplicated the double twist wrap with regular paracord. It takes almost 12 feet of paracord and about 10 minutes. And the lack of a wrap doesn't affect the throw. You could use it for throwing without the wrap but if you also want to use it as a utility knife, the wrap makes it more comfortable to handle.The edge gets badly dinged by the other knives but that's not the knife's fault. I also managed to drive the point of one into something hard enough to flatten it back about an eighth of an inch. I stoned in a new point and we're ready to go.I suppose it would spin throw well enough but I haven't practiced it.It's quite a bit heavier than even my large Hibben throwers which is fine for me.I like the nylon sheath. The plastic reinforcers at the tip prevent punch out and the nylon doesn't hold moisture. It's not fancy but it's all that I want.All around it's a great knife.I did find that my CRKT Hisatu is easier to throw. But that knife is not made for throwing and is just too expensive and hard (I think it might break) to throw much.

Out of the box, my spear would not screw together. After trying to force it, the cheap leather fell right off, apparently held on by nothing more than some double sided tape. I couldn't get it to go together fully, but it doesn't matter since it's extremely wobbly and flimsy feeling at the point where the two halves connect. The spearhead is nowhere near as mean looking in person. Vaguely point shaped, with no attempt at an edge whatsoever. The finish is rubbery feeling and tacky looking. The pole is also slightly warped. Total waste of money.

The spear is sharp, well formed, and accurate. A comment below said it is wobbly, however it's actually suppose to be like that. Very nice spear

Originally I was only going to give this 4/5 stars, but after reading the description in Wickipedia I decided that the manufacturer opted for historical accuracy (as well as the film) rather than aesthetics.

This spear, referred to as a dory, was the chief armament of heavy infantry (hoplites) in Ancient Greece. This re-creation is massive, deadly, and for the most part just very well done, especially the rough, blackened hand-made look to the spear head and butt-spike.

Mine was sharp already btw, especially the points. My shaft was a deep bronze color rather than black but looks pretty cool. The threads where two pieces of shaft screw together are strong and deep. Overall an awesome weapon, and even more interesting when you read some of the history and how it was used in battle. Formidable!

Don't waste money. This spear is pointy but not sharp. Hard but wobbly.

This spear is awesome! It has a nice weight to it and is easy to screw the two halves together. Be warned, though - this spear is SHARP!! I have no doubt in my mind that you could skewer a boar with this thing!! Also, kudos to True Swords, as they had it for the cheapest price I found on the Internet!! I will definitely be using this in my historical re-enactment group!

This is a large spear. Great quality, well worth the price.

A must have if you purchased the shield or sword, saying the Spear of Sparta is tall is almost a understatement (Make sure you have plenty room for it). Its not detailed like the shield or sword but the design is just like the movie. Over all its a great addition to any collection.
