A spearhead or spear head is the sharpened tip of a spear. Spears are pole weapons used for hunting and war. They primarily consist of a shaft, usually of wood, with a sharpened spearhead. The spearhead may be simply the sharpened end of the shaft itself, as it is the case of bamboo spears, or it may be made of another material fastened to the shaft, such as obsidian, bronze, steel, pewter, or bone. The most common design is that of a metal spearhead which is shaped like a triangle or a leaf. During the late Bronze Age, the most common personal weapon was a spear, until the advent of firearms. Spears with various types of spearheads are seen as the ancestor of such weapons as the lance, the halberd, the naginata, and the pike. The spear with a spearhead or spear head is one of the earliest weapons fashioned by human beings and their ancestors, and it is still used for hunting and fishing. The spear with a spearhead still influences contemporary military arsenals as seen in the design of the rifle-mounted bayonet.
Spears can be used as melee and ballistic weapons. Spears with pewter, bone, or obsidian spearheads are used primarily for thrusting and tend to have heavier, sturdier designs than those intended for throwing. Two of the most popular throwing spears are the javelin thrown by the ancient Greeks and the pilum used by the Romans.
