    I do not really understand ...... ??? These photos are examples. The whole technique of forge spear with central rib the shaft with the axis is a normal formation of the sleeve, then, the initial shape of the bone in the matrix with a 5 kg hammer and stretching the material from side to side ... that's all. ...aaaa ... hahaha ... vessel for coke is a soviet helmet from the second world war ... hahahh ..

    Thank you for a good word! I've already put photos from forging a spear with my bone ... No problem, do it again ...... I use three hammers: 1 kg, 1.5 kg and 5 kg The lead pre-shapes in the form and then I stretch to the sides of the anvil. Recipe for a spear with a "ridge" after the old. 1.Clean the hearth 2.Make a fire 3. Iron the 2.2 cm thick iron rod to flatness at one end 4.This flat end is formed in the sleeve 5. Move the rod under the "leaf" of the spear 6.Profile the leaf on the anvil 7. Apply the leaf in the form of a 5-kilogram hammer 8.During some time profiling on the anvil Give your neighbor a sharp wooden pole. Bon Appetit!

    These asymmetrical spears are, in my opinion, a phenomenon in ancient spars. Only the Celts had such! There are still ... similar Germanic but not about such sizes! As for the destination, they were used to fight ...... Attributes on the cutting edges made it easier to deal greater damage ... when used for cutting. At the push it's quite "smashing" ....

    Thank you for a good word! I love what I do and it brings me great satisfaction! As for the technique of forging knives, it smacks them, like spears, from a rod, 2-3 cm thick, by hand. I start with the handle, the first one forms the first ball then the break and the second ball and then the blade. Then the balls are fine-tuned by hand with a file and sandpaper. I will try to give some pictures in the near future. In ancient weapons, spears, swords, daggers, knives etc. the most important is the weight. Celtic knives of this type were very, very light ... Here's an example: Two Celtic iron deposits from Pakoszówka, Sanok district. Iron knife (Figure 6) - incomplete; five have been preserved, deliberately fragmented, slightly corroded and distorted fragments; made of a bar; short ka, bent handle with an oval cross-section, finished with With a thickened bead, it expands through another spherical thickening in a wide, single-edged narrowing cone evenly towards the engraving, the back of which was originally distinguished on both sides. Dimensions: reconstructed, too - retractable length - approx. 39.0 cm, handle length - 7.3 cm, cross-section of the handle - 1,3 × 1.5 cm, maximum width blades - 5.5 cm, maximum thickness of the top of the blade - 1.05 cm. Weight (preserved) of the knife - 287 g. http://www.archeologia.ur.edu.pl/wp-content/uploads/2017/05/11_Bochnak_Kotowicz_Opielowska.pdf

    Scythians were dominated by a zoomorphic motif, anthropomorphic and geometrical in Celts. As in the Scythians, the most common representations are images of mythical animals, such as Celtic circles, circles and wavy lines. Circle, sphere, etc as a symbol of the life cycle .... etc ... Long spear with a ball, period of La Tene, Germany. Length 50 cm,widest point 3.7 cm, hole 2.1 cm, weight 430 grams. An asymmetrical spear, period of La Tene, France. The length of 37.5 cm,widest point is 4.6 cm, hole 2,3,cm,weight 390 gram. Long knife, Hiebmesser, period of La Tene, Germany. Length 45 cm, widest point 4.5 cm, weight 440 gram.
