    I think that for Elvish spears at least, the decorative designs on the handles are almost as important as the blades for getting a true feeling for the weapon as a whole. You might get away with selling human spears without the shaft and putting one on from somewhere else, but the elven ones would lose too much that way. Of course, I suppose UC could sell the spear heads and shafts seperately the way they're doing most of the scabbards, but I don't think a spear head stands on its own as a display piece the way a sword does.

    I would buy it. Is absolutely beautiful. Peter Lyons said that it was one of the hardest things he had to make, but because of the time spent on it, it was the most detailed and amazing piece he made.

    Gentlemen, Many martial arts suppliers ship poles and staffs. It would not be as big of a problem as you might think. I purchased a Boar Hunting Spear from Cold Steel. They shipped it to me without any problems.

    I am not sure what the length of the Gil-galad's Spear was in the movies, but if United does indeed make this weapon it would be of course an exact replica of that weapon.

    Just a guess here but it is at least in the six foot plus range. Assuming the actor is of average hight that wuld make it five ten for him and it is about a foot or so longer than the actor. So that would be my best guess at this point.

    Sir, My Boar Spear shaft is 6 feet long. I would gues that the blade is aprox. 16" long. I hope this helps.

    I'd say Aiglos would have to be around 8 feet, the actor playing Gil-Galad is at least 6 feet I think and in the attached pic you can see the spear is quite a bit taller than him.
    All in all I can't think of a more annoying and hard weapon to fight with after my brief experience fighting with spears, but I suppose its fine for an elf. But it would look damn purdy on my wall and I would definately buy it. It's actually probably the item of weapon I want made most of all at this point, be good to have something other than swords and daggers. Plus Gil-Galad just rocks.

    Actually, i heard that Aiglos was 9 feet long from another thread in this forum, but yea, i would love to buy it altho, it looks more like a halbred of some kind than a spear because of the way it curves and looks somewhat like a sword blade for a tip.

    I also will sign my name to this petition. Aeglos must be made! It and Narsil are the principle weapons of the Battle of the Last Alliance, the only two with names. As Elendil fell in battle, so did Gil-Galad, and they must both be honored.

    I agree, Gil-galad's Spear is definitely a must to complete the collection!
