Details

The Samburu tribe who inhabit Kenya's rugged northern frontier are a tall, lean people who eke out a living as semi-nomadic herders of sheep, goats, donkeys, camels and cattle.

The warriors of the tribe known as "Lmurran" are particularly impressive, as they never cut their long braided hair and decorate their faces and torsos in beautifully intricate patterns using a cosmetic mixture made from animal fat and red ochre.

Since their flocks and herds are constantly menaced by predators and subject to raids by lawless "Shiftas" (bandits) from Somalia, they seldom venture outside their "Kraals" (a kind of makeshift hut) without being thoroughly armed.

In fact, no warrior worthy of his name would think of being caught without his spears. You see, the Samburu warrior's seven foot long throwing spear is the most advanced, state of the art spear of its type on the planet. With this extraordinary spear, warriors routinely dispatch marauding leopards, lions and even firearm toting bandits at unheard of distances.

Each of our Samburu spears break down into three components: The first is the spear head itself, permanently welded to a thick steel shaft. Second is the counter balancing butt spike also known as the shoe. This is used as an alternative point for practice throwing, preserving the actual spear blade itself for more serious work. Third is the black, U.S. Made Hickory handle with a double taper connecting the head and shoe.
