Iron spears and javelins


Recommended Posts

I really like to forge spears and javelins ... especially Celtic because to me what they achieved their championship this !!
I put some pictures, all carved by hand with a hammer.
The latter is 58 cm long and brews 580 grams.
Spear Karolingian with three balls is interesting and an awful lot of work put into it!

Spears with fishbone forge in two ways: one is the pin bones of a hammer and a further profiling leaves.
The second way is between two iron dies and 5 kg hammer.
I'm looking in the archaeological literature some confirmations on the train the other way ... but I can not find it.
