This is an ancient, aerodynamic spear, which someone made fairly recently in prehistoric times. It's one of those time travel wossnames -- paradoxes, yeah, that's it. Anyway, it's basically a stick with a tooth stuck to one end of it. If you have a wooly mammoth to slay, it's your best option.
(In-game plural: prehistoric spears)

- The use of the word "wossnames" could refer to Sandman #18, "A Midsummer Night's Dream", in which the fairy Peaseblossom refers to his portrayal in Shakespeare's play, saying, "It's one of those wossnames -- travelogue? Nah... Travesty. That's it." Neil Gaiman later referred to the use of the word "travelogue", which didn't exist in Shakespeare's time, as an anachronistic paradox suited to a fairy, who lives outside the timestream.
- The use of the word "wossnames" and the phrase "made quite recently in prehistoric times" could also be a reference to the Discworld novel The Last Continent, in which Rincewind goes to an Australia-like land and has it explained to him by a talking kangaroo how everything there is ancient, but wasn't there the day before.
- "Eegah!", from one of the hit messages, is a reference to the 1962 movie of the same name, Eegah!, which starred Richard Kiel as a caveman.
- "Let's hope nobody unfreezes any caveman lawyers", from one of the hit messages, is a reference to the "Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer" sketch from Saturday Night Live.
