I have recently been to a party about antiquity and iron smelting, "Dymarki Świętokrzyskie".

The event concerned the topic of iron production in the early centuries of our era.
I forge spearheads and javelins
Here are some pictures.

I'm glad Jim.

These are some of the spears that I made this month, the longest, Celtic is 67 cm long.
All forged by hand with a hammer.
No welded.
No power hammer forging.

That is nice work.  My forging skills are nowhere near what it would take to make any of those.
