Wood for a Spear Shaft

I know that ash is best, but there is a scarcity of ash hereabouts. I know that oak is too hard and brittle and will break into shards. I want to get wood for a spear shaft this afternoon, along with the stuff I need to fix my Viking A-frame, so I can mount one of the spearheads sitting on my desk. If anyone has suggestions (or warnings) about the type of wood, I'd love to hear them!

Thanks.
