The more I see spear heads the more I want to finish one! 

 

 

 

I got two pattern welded projects laying around and one has been begging me to be a spear head with some inlay on the socket!

I wanted to attempt to make a corrugated Anglo Saxon spear head as it seemed a little involved in the forging process.

 

Since then, about a year ago I made up 2 decent patterned blanks.  One is already dedicated to be a small knife, the second blank came out in a nice leaf shape. 

 

I have not gotten back to them as I found out really fast that I hate the amount of time grinding on them.

Pickle and scrape!  That's about the only way to clean up those corrugated ones, or those T-backed Indo-Persian blades.  Of course, you have to forge very close to final shape if you're gonna use that method.
