  1. I like the shape of the so-called Moscow berdish. In the Museum of Polish Army in Warsaw there are some (pictures below). You did, nicely look reconstruction, i like it except modern welding technology you used to create it.
  2. New tutorial is now available. This time i forged Viking age axe based on the archaeological finds from Gotland. I used wrought iron and O2 steel. Enjoy watching.
  3. this kind of axes was quite common in Poland during early medieval, plenty of them were found. My axe has 15 cm blade, i used wrought iron and O2 steel.
  4. thanks Alan, it was not my first attempt at forging this kind of axes. There are many ways to get the same result but this one is, in my opinion, the best and historically correct (the eye is punch and drift).
  5. The Maple wood was used in the original ones the most. The shaft will be simple round.
  6. Great Moravian battle-axe, I used good quality wrought iron and old steel (19-cent), I started to forge it with flat bar 2 cm x 6 cm. The axe eye is punch and drift. The original archaeological find i based on. If you are interested of this kind of axes, here you can find axe catalog from Czech Republic.
  7. This time small a bit more than 500 g axe. I used wrought iron. The eye is fold and weld. I based on the archaeological find from Ostrów Lednicki (Poland).
  8. I wonder if in 1000 years, an archaeologist who might find our replicas can say: look I found the ancient replica of the ancient spear :-).
  9. Thank you very much that you guys appreciate my works and my skills. This is quite a big surprise for me, I am so happy about it. Alan, if you can please change my avatar. Can you also change my nick name to my full name, Maciek Tomaszczyk if possible. Thanks again.
  10. There is a plan to test this spear in terms of different techniques of battle fights.
