We and our dogs take have been taken part in driving hunts for more than ten years. We have not seriously considered a boar spear because of the high weights, the packing dimensions and the blade lengths.
However, the events have accumulated during the many hunts, where a boar spear could be a useful tool. Because the killing of a wild boar with the boar spear has the advantage, compared to a shot, that the dogs that hold the boar, will not be compromised and their hearing is not affected by the bang. In addition, there is the aspect of endangering one's own health and one's own life in close combat with a defensive animal (self-protection).
A marketable product, which could give us the desired distance to the defensive wild animal and at the same time being compact and light enough, so as not to disturb during the passage, was not available. So in many conversations with other and likeminded dog handlers and hunters, we decided to develop a suitable tool for our own purposes.
Our requirements on a new boar spear were:
- Light weight
- Small pack size
- Safe transport
- Easy cleaning
- Length of the blade only as long as it will lethally penetrate into the boar, but does not endanger dogs behind it.
After several months of development and prototypes, we came to the current product. We continuously receive feedback from our customers and continuously develop the boar spear.
