- "As Rukil told us, it is not an easy life. Our children will grow up in a world of spears and bows, not blasters and starships."
Description[edit | edit source]
A spear consisted of a shaft, with a point at one end that was usually made of stone or metal. Spears were often constructed in a balanced way that allowed it to be used effectively as a thrown weapon.
Different types of spears included the bevii'ragir, a traditional Mandalorian spear used for hunting, a static pike used by Geonosians, the shoni spear favored by the Kaleesh, stone-bladed spears used by Whiphid warriors, and the gruush, a pointed tool used by the Sauvax species that could also be used as a weapon.
Spears constructed of durable metal alloys were sometimes used by more advanced cultures for sport.
History[edit | edit source]
The former clone commando-turned-Mandalorian soldier, Fi Skirata, made use of a traditional Mandalorian hunting spear known as a bevii'ragir. Wad'e Tay'haai, a Mandalorian member of the Cuy'val Dar and an associate of Skirata's clan, owned an ancient spear cast from bronzium.
On endor, the members of the ewok tribes used them to ward off attackers. Such as the imperial army.
