the technical term I believe is 'pike'
bc spears are for throwing
I thought javelins where the ones for throwing, weren't they?
yeah, your'e right...
maybe spear is a general term?
pike, spear, javelin, halberd, polearm... some one please, contact Shadiversity
In my opinion, spears can be used for stabbing and throwing, pikes are only for stabby stabbies, and javelins are for throwing only, now halberds are a combination of spear and axe, and polearms are a combination of spear, axe and hammer.
