a porker done-in by said item, all that's missing here is a shot with you, the
spear, and said tusker -- perhaps a tame one ? or previously done-in and
taxidermied one ? You could put your arm around the fellow, and title the
shot " No Hard Feelings. " ...

Sidenote : Keep hoping that " far east " item will show-up in a similar thread !

Well... I also make traditional longbows and have taken several deer with them.. and I would LOVE a chance to hunt boar with one. But! A spear would be a bit much for me. Not even sure how I would do it? Hang from a tree and jump on it!? Maybe for dispatching a wounded animal I suppose.

I love that dwarvish picture!

The bronze project is on hold until I finish this bloomery langsax.. but I will get back on it soon!


Here are some more pictures.. later today I will have the final shafted pictures.



This picture shows the awl shaped/reinforced tip and how it transitions to knife edge sharpness:

Wicked! That was the first non-profane adjective that comes to mind seeing those latest shots.
There is nothing quite as sad as a one man conga-line...
