Paleo Spears
This is the only place I'm aware of that offers paleo spears for sale.  My spears are made from saplings that are
cut down from the woods, debarked slowly over 6-8 months with flint scrapers and modern tools, and are
straightened by fire.  I also use machine milled shafts from the local harware store which allows for quicker order
fullfillment.  Each spear will have some sort of foreshaft that is connected to a paleo spear point with sinew, gut,
hide glue, and my own special pine pitch glue.  The end of the spear shaft is reinforced against splitting with
dogbane cordage wrapped into pine pitch glue.  This was essential if you were going to skewer a mammoth it.  I
don't believe all paleo spears were thrown, but instead believe many were used to thrust into large animals while
other hunters distracted them.  Making a throwing spear would have required a lot of work to be sure that it was
perfectly straight, and since I've looked over an entire forest for straight saplings, I know they are almost
impossible to find, so of course sapling spears are a bit higher in price.  So here I offer you a chance to buy my
best guess at what a paleo thrusting spear would have looked like.  Just think what a conversation piece this would

similair to this in color and craftsmenship.  I have
pictures of each part of the whole shaft and can
e-mail them if necessary to a possible purchaser.
This spear sports some hash marks carved into the
shaft about 1/3 of the way down from the tip. I'll let
you make up the story as to why they are there
should you purchase it.  My thoughts is that they
represent the number of mammoths taken by that
