I'm new here. My name's Ian (<that's an " i " ). I'm "out of country" for business at the moment, but before I had to leave I was making quality bodkin points. I feel the need to expand my porfolio of points and am really quite interested in the "tudor bodkin".
The problem is I have absolutely no idea how it is formed (actually I have one idea... but I don't think it holds water... a spring swage maybe?.... were they even used in the dark ages, spring swages?). I've dredged the depths of the inter-webs looking for even a clue to how this point is formed and I have come up empty handed. Anybody with knowledge on this? Any help or explanation... or for that matter.... just a hint would be so very helpful. Thanks in advance.

ps: not sure who made this actual point it was google image retrieved, if i had a clue who made 'em I wouldn't bother even asking if I could use the image... I'd ask them how they are made.
