The concept for this weapon comes from the Wheel of Time book series as described for the Matrim Cauthon character. The limited description provided in the books left room for further embellishment beyond the raven and Old Tongue inscription, so the blade is further adorned with dice which recall the good luck that follows this character. The weapon was commissioned as a prop headed to JordanCon, so a 4 ft. portion of the shaft separates from the blade for convenient travel storage. Also, the textured PVC spear shaft provides a durable yet lightweight alternative to wood and hammered metal couplings, comfortable to carry all day. Finally, the flexibility of the foam and 3D printed rubber composing the blade make it safer for convention attendees.
