Weighted Roman Pilum Square AH-3525
The Weighted Roman Square Pilum-principle tool of the Roman Legionnaire. This pilum, or spear, was well designed to destroy the ability of the opponent's shield defense. The short head could easily penetrate a wooden shield, and the long neck prevented the head from being cut off. Thus encumbered, the shield was rendered useless, leaving the opponent unprotected. Made of mild steel, it would easily bend, preventing it from being thrown back. Our replica is weighted to aid penetration, common about 100 A.D.
Head 24", Pole 54" long
Overall Length 84"
