Over All Length, 5-1/2 feet long and the spear head is made if 3/8 inch thick steel. The spearhead is my Stock Removal project, I hand made the jute rope wrapped around the top quarter to cover the bolts that secure the steel to the wood and add texture. At the shoulders, the spear head is 4 inches across. I screwed a steel ring to the shaft at the bottom that can be used for a myriad of reasons. Now its time for Beta Testing! I’m gong to put it through a car door, a wooden dorm and anything else I can find. I may give it to a friend who is an enormous Strongman/Powerlifter and see how much damage he can do with it.
I’ve recently started experimenting with etching, I used PCB etchant from Radio Shack on another blade, the results were nice. I am going to etch my next spear, however I want to make the spearhead black. To get the same high-contrast that the folks over at Zombie Tools use. I think they also use ETEC-502 somewhere along the process. Any advice and constructive criticism is appreciated.
Off to a great start! The spikes make fun work. A great way to cheaply practice technique and good for gifts. When its done, try soaking it in vinegar for a weekend and then scrub it off. Leaves a nice shine.
