  10. Thank You guys! This longest, Celtic is 67 cm. Last weekend I was at the ancient "Dymarki Świętokrzyskie". The event concerned the object of iron and steel industry in the early centuries of our era. It is mainly about reconstruction of the process. Spin the charcoal spears in the simplest furnace they could use in those times blacksmiths. Here are some photos ..
  11. Cool movie. Many different tools use this blacksmith .... I wonder what length has this spear and how much brew? Let me introduce my process of forging a spear or a javelin ... unfortunately for now only photos. When my wife comes back from vacation, I'll make a movie. Recipe for a spear with a " fish bone" after the old. 1.Clear the hearth 2.Start fire 3. Iron rod with a thickness of 2.2 cm infuse to flatness at one end 4.The flat end of the mold formed in the sleeve. 5. Move the rod under the "leaf" of the spear 6.profile the leaf on the anvil 7. Apply the leaf in the form of a 5-kilogram hammer 8.Co some time profiling on the anvil Serve your neighbor sharpened on a long wooden pole. Bon Appetit!
  12. In the last week several new spears and javelins were made. Mostly it is reproductions of Illerup Adal and Nydam, but also Celtic (the little to javelin). I present them. AAA .... I would like to add that I do not use power tools .... no ... I try ... at least. I try to do as much as possible with a hammer and work with a file or a stone, at the end with sandpaper. None of my spears were, and probably will not, but at least welded electrically ....... I have a welder but until today I have not learned ... hahahaha
