Hand Wrought Iron Fishing Spears

Eel and fish spears and clam rakes were all tools of the trade for the New England fisherman. They were frequently hand forged and their form was determined solely by their function. Today we can view them as both interesting social historical artifacts as well as aesthetically pleasing objects. The spears we are offering all show signs of heavy use.

Eight pronged hand forged eel spear with wooden handle. 14" overall length; prongs 5.25" w. x 5.5" h. Handle has a crack on both sides. (Stock number 005spear11) $125.00
