Took a Viking Era Blacksmithing class taught by Mr. Elmer Roush a few weeks ago. Great class! We went over mammen pattern axes, spears, arrowheads, and some other pattern axes. I was able to forge a large spear (my favorite exercise from the class), a mammen pattern axe, a mess of arrowheads (none of which I was super proud of, need more practice with those), and I managed to squeak in a tomahawk on the last day for fun! Great class, great facilities at John C. Campbell Folk School, great FOOD, and a truly inspiring, down to earth, helpful instructor and assistant. I can't wait to go back and learn more from Elmer. I've never forged a spear before but I think I truly enjoyed forging the spear more than I do axes, tomahawks, knives, or whatever. What a fun process! The spear, hawk, and axe are all A36 with 1095 welded cutting edges and bits. The arrowheads are all mild. Thanks for looking! Moderators, I put this in historical based on the title, my apologies if it is improperly located!
Hey fellows! This is me forging a European style socketed shorter bodkin arrow head for target practice. I was making these arrow heads for my own needs because I am building some arrows at the moment. In the end of the video you can see some other heads alongside with the one I forged, inter alia also a Manchurian style tanged arrow head about which I am soon going to make a tutorial video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=TiouujzZ2ws This video is more of artistic nature, but I show all steps, so it also services as tutorial as well. You can also see a picture of the arrrow heads I made along with the one in the video as an attachment to this post. Your - Daniel
