For an extensive measure, see the Tiles article. Spear or javelin is a weapon that is found in many civilizations of the world, mainly because of the ease of manufacture and low cost of manufacture. A spear is a weapon for hunting and war, its part consists of a stick as a handle and sharp spearheads or eyes and sometimes hardened with other materials. Along with axes, spears were the first tools made by humans and in line with the development of civilization, spearheads and axes which were originally in the form of bone or crushed stone were replaced with metal that is stronger and more durable. In Indonesia, the spear is the main weapon that is widely used by traditional Indonesian soldiers. This is mainly due to the scarcity of iron and other metals in Indonesia making it difficult to make swords. Therefore the weapons that were more commonly used in Indonesia or the Malay nations used to be weapons that used less iron than swords, namely axes, machetes or machetes, and spears. Among the weapons above, only spears are used only as weapons (including as hunting weapons). There is a kind of spear without an eye that is often used by militia in the archipelago, namely a sharpened bamboo made of sharpened bamboo without any reinforcement at the end. To deal with the traditional soldiers of the archipelago and the colonial army this is a deadly stabbing weapon because they are not equipped with armor protection.
