Show here your Greek warrior impression
Then these references you've found are wrong! Or they mean 1-2 cm not inches,as Voctor Davis Hanson suggests. And he's right.Because you'll never find such a wide shaft,especially for untappered spears. In fact, all pieces of actual shafts that have survived are rather thin. Not to mention that there are refferences of spears breaking easily in battle. Your spear would never break,with the thickness it has.
Additionally,the art correspinds with these views,and the shafts that ae depicted are rather thin,never exceeding one inch in diameter,and often less.
I suggest you make such a shaft out of ash or dogwood,and you'll feel the difference. Also remember that the spear points and butts would have been MUCH lighter than most reproductions.
