some maasi ground spikes are quite long/heavy tho. so are the blades
the spike on this one of mine is 57cm. the greek phalanx used a spear with a 'saroter' butt spike that counterbalanced the point & was a secondary weapon in itself, so is the maasi version, they practice throwing their spears butt end first to protect the blade end from damage or dulling. the longer the spear/pike/lance, the longer the butt spike.
