The dory is a spear that was the chief armament of hoplites (heavy infantry) in Ancient Greece. The word "dory" was first attested by Homer with the meanings of "wood" and "spear".  In the Homeric epics and in the classical period the dory was a symbol of military power, possibly more important than the sword.

The dory was about 7 to 9 feet in length and had a handle with a diameter of 5 cm (two inches) made of wood, either cornel or ash weighing 2 to 4 lb. The flat leaf-shaped spearhead was composed of iron and its weight was counterbalanced by a bronze butt-spike.

In order to minimise cost these parts are shipped without the wooden portion of the spear. Customers may attach a suitable wooden section of their choosing.
