It has been a while (like 8 years or so) since I made any spear points..so I decided to go ahead and make a few... These are hand forged from 1045 steel for the blades (as this steel is very, VERY tough) and 1018 mild steel for the sockets. Sockets are drilled on one (1) side for a retaining screw. Sockets taper down from 1 1/8" ID.
All heads are slow browned/russeted finish. These are semi-lenticular in cross section points..
These are nicely finished with a beautiful "chocolate" slow rust browning on them. Quite attractive, and ready to go.. All have between 8 1/2" to 9 3/4" long blades with an OAL of approx 16 to 17".
Traditional browning takes a while to get done correctly, and this can be anywhere from 10 to 24 days depending upon the temperature and humidity levels. This is a very durable finish and the same finish I use on my throwing axes. This same type of finish was used in Colonial America to finish various Long Rifles, Fowlers, Pistols and Shotguns..
I have had numerous accounts and messages from hunters using both styles on wild pigs in California, Texas, Tennessee, as well as North and South Carolina, Mississippi and Louisiana.. all with great success using these points, so they have been "field tested" in some pretty rugged conditions...
Both the leaf blade and the straight blade points are priced the same... Priced at $150.00 each.
NOTE: Spears are in the works...please check back...
