    WTB 1868 Cavalry Lance Spike End

    Hi everyone, I know this is a long shot but if you have a spike end for an 1868 Cavalry lance that is just sitting around I'd love to take it off your hands. I was able to find a Wilkinson lance head for a great price but unfortunately the spike end did not come with it.

    Also if someone knows where I could even find a modern spike end, I'd consider that as well.

    Thanks

    These people:

    have the Hanwei replica listed as in stock. It's been discontinued for quite some time, so might be good to check the accuracy of that before buying.

    I see that the RCMP still uses the 1868 lance, so perhaps somebody still makes them.

    Thanks for the reply. Not a fan of Hanwei, so I'm still on the look.

    Cheers

    The butt end isn't pointy or easily recognized so many probably have been discarded. i see points occasionally. Try auctions that are also online, one coming up in the UK has a complete lance and the shaft and middle leather are never found separately. Good thing is they don't sell too high as they are long and costly to ship.

    Hey Will

    I did some research and unfortunately I actually have a Wilkinson spear head that did not come with a spike end.

    User J Fraser pointed me in this direction: http://www.standtallimports.ca I'm still waiting to hear back from them but I believe it will end up being the same item (Hanwei) as what Timo Nieminen posted. Not sure if I will get it as like I mentioned I am not a fan of Hanwei but there is an option for it to come in a little RCMP display case and it really doesn't look that bad for us Canadians.

    By the way Will - I'm going on course in Borden ON this summer but may try do a course in Kingston in the future. If I ever do, I'd love to give you a shout and meet up for a beer.
