Viking Long Spear
This is a traditionally-made spearhead and (just like the originals) may have one or two carbon inclusions. These carbon inclusions may appear as a few black spots or dimples on the surface of the steel. They do not discernably weaken the weapon and add character to the blade.
Attached to a good timber shaft, this looks impressive and would be a very formidable weapon. The blade is hardened steel and the socket is soft steel. The two parts are welded together. The only noteworthy fault was the socket and blade were not quite parallel with each other. But this was easily overcome by machining the timber shaft to suit. The blade has some slight inclusions and patterning through it which look good and adds to the authenticity. Rob on 6th Jun 2016
