Assegai Spear
I ordered this for a Christmas present, but it was backordered. I just received it and am very pleased. It is high quality and will be enjoyed for years.

When I opened up the box and saw the construction I was a little concerned, but I treated the wood, assembled the spearhead to the shaft (still a weak point to me)and took it for a "use" spin to see how it would function.  I was thoroughly impressed.  The durability of the shaft and spearhead is amazing and its penetration is admirable.  If you are practicing against a solid wood target expect a little effort to remove this spear even with a "pool stick" grip.  I carry this with me hiking (we have a lot of predators and dangerous wild life) and the spear head even holds up well to striking rocks.  If you are looking for a simple, effective, and ancient weapon - Cold Steel has a great one here for a great price!
