The handle is a little thinner then I was expecting and I would like it to have been about a foot longer. (Pic is It next to a standard dowel used as a closet hanger.) Other then that, I love this bad boy. Now I am seriously considering other M48 items. Especially other pole arms because they are interchangeable so I could put this spear head on a longer shaft haha! Might even by another of these one day. That is if they are not discontinued and go on sale again. $50-$60 is an acceptable price.
If you use this weapon appropriately you will love it too. It is not meant to be thrown at trees or thrust into railroad ties. In fact, unless you are a competent spear thrower, just don’t throw it. You will damage it. Also, it’s not an axe so don't swing it like one. And it’s not a knife either. This is for thrusting into fleshy targets. Some of these reviews are extreme cringe.
This spear fits in the molle on the back of my M48 tactical vest. I carry this into the woods with me for protection against coyotes and snakes. Of course if they somehow get past this spear then I’ve got two pistols. One in the vest holster and one in the M48 rigged drop leg holster. Which by the way if you don’t have the vest or drop leg holster you need to go buy them today! I recommend all 3 products, the spear, tactical vest, and drop leg holster!
I read many of these so-called reviews, and may I just say as an expert spearhunter, most of you are morons. This is not a weapon designed to slice, it's designed to penetrate (like a f*****g spear)! If you want a long polearm style weapon that can slice like a sword without breaking or bending etc. then buy a Japanese Naginata. Otherwise, this spear will perform excellently as described. Stop being dumb.
This spear is spectacular very durable and very shard would recommend.
I bought this for myself and was great-threw it at pineapple an tree and works very well. but do not do what it is not designed for. My older son wanted to borrow it for a camping trip with himself and some buddies. Apparently this is not a axe because a overhead, downward thrust with two hands to cut threw a ham bone is to much for the handle it snapped off right below where the blade ends.
I was very happy with the item, but use outside of its design can cause serious or death, if you are swing at a tree or pole and miss and hit the handle, which I did not know was able to just snap off under stress. Still loved the item, and trying to redesign into a knife or convert into a more sturdy spear handle.
This thing would be great for home protection in the event of a break in I feel sorry for how scared the intruders would look even with a gun in there hand I'll show no mercy with this in my hand I bought one I have to say great job bud k
This spear can be used like a hikking staff, good for defense its Light and good looking! I cut a cow's leg bone and poked a dead pig's head... So it can kill things. Its a short spear and is needed some training to adapt to its size
Hey there, all those whom are using this spear for what it is not designed should not own a weapon at all. This spear is awesome for piecing flesh and bone. It is also an awesome self defense weapon and can be used in confined spaces. So all of you idiots whom are flinging it into wood and metal you are really brain dead. Just saying
Bought this just because it looked
Cool and I collect guns knives blades etc I've jabbed it into trees through microwaves dish washers and other household appliances along with plywood and some cheap furniture and the only complaint I have was the tip bent a little but I fixed that with a flat file very enjoyable product
This blade is awesome! I tore apart my archery target and was even able to throw it across the room and hit my mark!! Cut clean through the top of my shoe pulling it out of my target (accidentally of course) This is a serious weapon! Well built and sturdy and a definite recommend to friends!!
"Spear designed for law enforcement".... Since when would any law enforcer use a spear.
I bought it felt sturdy,but when I tried to cut some cutzoo vines,the blade not only got so dull but it developed nicks in the blade LIKE its the cheapest steel they found to make this spear,And it would never chop a block like it shows in the picture cause the spear would break an completely destroy the edges.
The M48 Survival Spear from United Cutlery is designed for survival, but earned it's weight in gold as a stalk hog hunters CQB weapon of choice. I am sure it would work great against zombies, yet to be tested by me, but for size, weight, and the strength in the design, you could take down a T-Rex. Bravo Zulu UC..
I really like this spear. It is designed as a combat and personal defense weapon and it is very good for those applications. It is not a hunting spear or garden tool, so don't use it for things it's not made for and you'll be happy with it. The handle appears quite sturdy but a little thin and slippery for me. Some sports tape wrapped around it at my hand contact points was a quick and easy fix. Personally, I think the length is just right for a combat weapon and allows for fast and fluid maneuvering. The spear head is a thick substantial steel piece and strongly made. Mine was very sharp out of the box, both at the point and along the edges too. It is a very effective and well made weapon for personal defense and I'm happy with the purchase.
I bought this short spear for the specific purpose of finishing downed game, if required. Good balance and perfect length for ending a hog hunt.
I bought this short spear for finishing downed animals while hog hunting. I can see straight out of the box that it will be ideal for the purpose intended.
I've wanted one of these survival spears for over a year, but I thought the price was too high. Bud-K offered a 15% discount on all merchandise, so I bought a spear at a good cheap price. I am NOT disappointed. Great quality at a great price.
and it doesn't claim to be. This it totally perfect as a personal defense weapon. It's the right size for most adults to wield against another human. If you train with staff weapons for fitness, then this is a great step up. the spear head has decent weight to it, but doesn't throw you off entirely so you can get adjusted to it. This is not a long Phalanx spear, stop downvoting it for that. Stop attacking trees with the tip and whining about it bending/breaking. it is not defective, your brain is. if you attack a tree, you will lose in one way or another unless you're using a chainsaw. It's a well balanced spear, and after wanting it for a few months and finally giving in, I'm a happy customer.
Great spear. I love it. Would like more length on the handle. 2 spears at this length single handed is quite a dangerous combo though.
I would only purchase this as a display piece. The steel in the blade is crappy soft stainless (there is a reason it's so thick, it's because it's crap). I have seen the point bend 90 degrees just from throwing it into soft white pine. The shaft is very flexible and weak and seems prone to breaking.
For any kind of survival task, this blade is a terrible choice. It would not reliably cut, chop or split, and it won't even make a spark on most ferro rods.
As am offensive or defensive weapon against soft fleshy people, I suppose this would work a few times. But if this is for your silly zombie fantasy, think again, this blade will bend or break on the first try to split a skull.
This is advertized as a breaching tool as well and frankly, I don't think this would survive the attempt unless your breaching a homeless guys cardboard shelter.
What a TERRIBLE product.
I did give it two stars because it IS pretty cool looking if you are a mall ninja (like most M48 products, they look good, but don't hold up to real use).
