    The morning star refers to the spiked ball itself. There are morning star maces and morninf star flails.

    That has been argued by others who have found historical evidence that the claim it did not exist is false. I don’t know I have heard both sides.

    Not this again! ;) I am quite prepared to accept that I was wrong, based on what scant evidence exists.

    Good pack of hunting dogs will tree or otherwise bring to bay most animals . Dogs are pack hunters and that's how they do their best work .

    Actually, the thread wasn't about knives but a spear. :eek: It still managed to get derailed. :rolleyes:

    Two duplicates were resurrected on the same day, both about the Cold Steel Boar Spear. Who knew?

    Comparing the efficacy of blade vs canine in SD against wildlife attacks ? How they can be used in a synergistic fashion for the optimal outcome ? This should be in Prac/tac . :confused:

    Attach a dog by a chain to the end of the spear - trifecta!

    Taken out of context . Responding to another's post equating a dog's SD value to a fart . I thought that was unfair , even if sometimes true . Not sure how this is helping stay on topic . Am I the new topic ? Rather not be . o_O

    On topic again : The CS Boar Spear is probably a very effective weapon in skilled hands , but you could have problems legally /socially trying to carry it around most places . Be easier to have a small pack of personal defense dogs .

    fishface5, close, but it must be a pack of dogs. ;) Actually, if it (a good sized dog) is not right there with you for the twin intimidation, a pack IS necessary. :thumbsup: You are correct, however, Boar spear + dog does = formidable combo. :cool: (Tried to quote you, not the first time I've tried this and can't figure it out; how sad :( :oops:)

    I’d say that a Spear is the most instinctual weapon, in human history. I don’t think you would have to log much time at all, in order to effectively use a spear, defensively, against an animal attack.

    Just be an average man, of average strength and coordination.

    Moral of the story since Canada has strict gun regulations the dudes wife would of been maimed and likely killed without access to a cold steel spear.

    Having to defend against a bear , using only a spear , I would hate to rely solely upon "instinct " . I would want to be as well practiced , reflexive and familiar with the weapon and it's best use as possible . An untrained person is just as likely to freeze up or be trying to think instead of just doing automatically a trained/drilled reflex . YMMV ! :)
