HAY U GUYZ LOOK WHAT CAME IN THE MAIL
This is an Egyptian Bronze Spear
from Omega Artworks. ("Egyptian" not because I wanted that particularly, but because it was one of the designs available in bronze instead of steel. Custom weaponry in steel isn't hard to find; bronze is pretty uncommon.) It's for ceremonial or decorative/costume purposes only - the spear head is pointy, but the edges are polished and not actually sharp. The shaft is birch wood and stained green per my request. Overall length about a foot taller than I am (again per specific request; usually they're shorter) so it came in a loooong box, apparently the longest they had ever shipped. Eight months from order (last August) to arrival, which is in line with what they said their average wait was (5-8 months). I've wanted a spear like this for a long time and lack of going out for entertainment was leaving me in possession of extra cash, so, yeah.
