Covid-19 Update
The shipment backlog from our shut down is pretty much caught up and we are essentially back to business as normal. The only exception is that we are not offering in person pick-up yet. We are also seeing some transit time delays with the shipping companies, especially internationally, so please keep that in mind. Otherwise we are working and ready to serve you.

This Greek Sauroter Butt Cap is forged from steel and is ready to be mounted onto your own wooden Dory spear pole end. Its pair of pre-drilled holes allow for it to be secured in its mounting with screws or nails. Mounting hardware is not included.

Although its primary function is to be a counterbalance to the spearhead, the Sauroter can function as a spiked spearhead in its own right should a speartip be broken or damaged in battle. Sauroter means ‘’lizard killer’’ - a reference perhaps to soldiers on guard duty spearing a wayward reptile. The Sauroter may have also functioned as a method for dispatching wounded foes on the ground. In the tight confines of a compressed phalanx it may have been impossible or inadvisable to turn a spear around to strike a foe on the ground, but the spiked sauroter would have done the job quite well, particularly with the full mass of the spear behind it in a powerful downward blow.
