A friend and mentor of mine made this tutorial video about forging a javelin head.

Starting stock was 20x20 mm 1045/C45

Thanks for the link Gergely.  I was watching thinking this guy is taking FOREVER. Then I looked at the time stamp, he finished the socket in under 12 minutes and another 11 to finish the javelin less file and finish work. That's out of my league. 

Good video, thanks.

Happy you liked it, Frosty! Funny you mentioned timing: he told me that the guy picturing the vid asked him to forge only one piece while the video is taken. He makes two pieces in the same time :)

Kopja is the Hungarian name for a short shafted (6') lance most usually used by cavalry. It's not for throwing but melee and/or horseback fight and also was used for hunting.

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!
