Jousting Lance (shown here
This jousting Lance is available either with or without a windmill on the end of it. Lances with windmills are known to have been used in the 15th, 16th, 17th and early 18th Centuries. The windmills are rather fascinating when you see them work, and they do work surprisingly well. however, care must be taken of them as they are somewhat fragile in comparison to the rest of the lance.
