The Akai Amulet
Ame hunting spear
The weapon is traditionally made from bone and wood, but recent trade with Samui has allowed most tribes to replace these materials with tempered steel. If the haft is composed of steel instead of wood (as it often is), it is always wrapped with a thick layer of hide to prevent the cold metal from sticking to the wielder’s hands.
The Ame hunting spear is given to members of the hunter caste upon completion of their first successful hunt. Due to its long reach and powerful blows it is of unparalleled use against the large predators of the Ame tundra, and is the weapon of choice for all members of the hunter caste in any serious combat.
