Javelin (5)

Ross

I think it could be either:

lance

spear

'javelin' is the definition.
(both can mean a long blade)

This is all the clue.

(Other definitions for lance that I've seen before include "Clean (anag) -- weapon" , "Long weapon; prick" , "Surgical knife" , "One like pike" , "Incise" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror, The Irish Independent and the Evening Standard.
