  1. That stone kicks ARSE! Very cool.

  2. Hi,

    Spearhead is a weapon from the middle ages, its super quality is making this spear so startling. It gives you much true evidence about the sixth century BC. Thanks a lot.

  3. "Spearhead" used in this instance,refers to the nickname of the 3rd armored division.Of which this American Hero was a proud member.
