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
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.
