Ahlspiess (also known as the Awl Pike)
Time Period: 15-16th century
Location: Germany, Austria, England
Common Construction: Steel

The ahlspiess is a heavy spear of German origin used in the 15th and 16th centuries. It has a long quadrangular steel head attached to a wooden shaft, and the soldier's hands are protected by a metal guard called a rondel.

The ahlspiess was used in England under the term Awl Pike. In addition to a weapon of war, the spear was also used in single combat tournaments. The ahlspiess is particularly front heavy, and one must commit the entire body to a spear thrust making it very difficult to recover from a missed attack.

Gail,The chart of EU imports – which have declined since 1979 if I read it coltrcrey, is disturbing in that the EU migrated away from what large vehicles it used rapidly, and switched to diesel too – and therefore now have little room left to increase efficiency in private transport. It’s much easier to go from 9mpg to 40mpg than from 40mpg to 80mpg.
