Custom Brainerd spear?

Recommended Posts

The guy told me this was custom and he payed $150 way back. 83” long 7” wide. Could this be the Brainerd spear?

Top one looks like a stainless steel Amish spear.  Widely available.  I don’t know anything about the other antique one that you’re referring to but for actual use I’d prefer the Amish.  
 

For nostalgia the bottom one beats it for sure.  I just prefer to stay away from using spears with flat surfaces for planing reasons.

 

That’s about all I got. Sorry, not much more help than that.  If I see one around Brainerd I’ll post back.

there's several people making the new one and not all amish...  as for the brainerd spear I have seen one years ago but can't recall how it looked...   get ahold of some one from Minn dark house and angling association...  I might even have one..

I'm with wanderer, that top spear is the stainless Amish spear,vi have the same spear only not stainless.

 

I don't do much nostalgia but I also prefer not having spears with flat surfaces.

 

Used alot of different Spears in my day, nothing beats the Amish spear, IMO

again I disagree, not all those SS are amish made...   there are several spear makers out there making them like that..   check them out at the decoy shows....

You’d know better than I.  It seems like a popular design that I was told originated from the Amish but I suppose it’s not hard to copy.

Found an ad for spears and saws by a maker in Browerville last night.  The Amish design but no mention of Amish in the ad.

 

He’s got a stainless 9 tine I like the looks of.  $300 seem high or fair?  I thought maybe a little high but hard say these days.

I saw his first twisted tine spear.  Cool detail and yes, more than just a spear. 👍
