The ango is a specialized spear designed for use in seal hunting. This two-handed weapon is among the heaviest spears (along with the wide trident). It shares the high Point rating of the northern spear and the Kaumolais spear. As with any spear, the ango can be used for fishing, and combat damage is effected by the Spear skill.
URW Game Encyclopedia description
The official URW in-game encyclopedia (accessed by the key) describes the ango thusly:
A spear used in seal hunting as well as in combat. It has very long metal blade with a pointed hook so that it will stuck in the seal (or an opponent or his shield for example) and thus make it harder for the wounded seal (or an opponent) to escape.
