cold steel assegai spear with short shaft - Thursday, November 30, 2017 12:23 AM ( #1 )
just bought one, AUD$54 including postage off Outfittercountry on Ebay, pictures to follow when I receive it. That price is like $20-$30 cheaper than I can buy it in country, just couldn't let it pass. Man they have some really good CS products at low prices.

I am so impressed with the short handled assegai I intend to get a long handled version as well.

Impractical idk. 
Had a rabid dog walk into the Lab one day and lodge itself underneath an expensive balance.  Another crawled under mother’s house.   One night at a big church camp out something big shuffled alongside my tent.   Any of those things I think one of those would be right handy.

mostly impractical in a modern sense, though as you say mate, they would have their uses. It just gives me please to own it, if I never stick it in something I will still be happy and have zero buyer regrete. With that being said if the opportunity arose for me to ethically dispatch a wild pig with it than I would be up for it. I just have to be careful here in Australia as we have become a nanny state and the Greenies wield considerable clout.

If you have access to the US version of Netflix and fancy a gander at a miniseries from 1986, check out "Shaka Zulu" to get a feel for the combat effectiveness of those spears.  And then tell me if I'm wrong when I say that Shaka was either a Roman Legionnaire in a previous life, or was channeling a spirit from those times because his fighting techniques were almost direct imitations of the Gladius and Scutum drills that made the First-Century Legions so deadly.

PS--if somebody comes into your house while you're wielding that thing, they ain't leaving your house in anything less than a body bag.  And you won't have to worry about patching holes in your walls or a stray bullet killing some innocent kid down the street.
