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!
Hello, 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. - Ian - 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.
