Additional information

This Viking Pattern Welded spearhead was made in collaboration with Arn Forge and it has been hand-forged in the traditional manner utilizing 1060, 15n20 and 1090 high carbon steel to form a composite, pattern-welded spearhead. The core is a softer steel to give it shock absorption and the vibrant bars of twisted steel that were forge welded to form the body of the spearhead are plainly visible. A harder edge of high carbon 1090 steel completes the spearhead to give it edges that are both harder and more resilient.

Included with the spearhead is a sheath of thick and durable leather. The interior diameter of the socket is approximately 1 / 24.8 mm in diameter.

While Seax and swords are the most famed objects that Viking smiths created with their skillful pattern-welding techniques the process applied to spearheads as well and often these would need to be forged using this technique to make the best of the materials and metallurgy available at the time. Bloomery steel making processes made steel with inconsistent carbon content, but all of it was precious and clever utilization of these differing carbon steels into the different components of a blade could create a single composite blade of great quality.

    5 stars for service and trust for KOA. I bought one on sale and it showed up with some cracks in the welds. Dusty sent me a replacement immediately. In the mean time I sharpened the NG one and it’s beautifully stabby. Replacement showed up today. Maybe I’m picky but the socket still has a bit of cracking on either side where it joins the blade of the spear. 10/10 would buy from KOA again.
