Thanks for watching this little blacksmithing tutorial.
The original Spearhead was found in an Allamanni grave in Gammertingen (Baden Württemberg) and dated to 570 AD witch makes it pre viking age. spearheads of this build type where used thruout the middle ages and in nearly all parts of europe tho.

Agreed, the spear looks great. Makes me want to break out my forge and anvil again and get to hammering. And everyone who speaks English has some kind of an accent. I'm a native speaker of English and I can understand his accent better than I can understand the accent of some other native English speakers. I think most English speaking people sort of accept and even expect that people are going to have accents and make grammatical errors. So for anyone out there who isn't a native speaker and is trying to learn English, don't worry if you get things wrong or have an accent. Very few native English speakers will care and many won't even notice.

Cool, you made two spears in one, after forging it was basically a hasta, then after grinding it became the Gammertingen form. I wonder if that's how they got the idea for this spear, by redesigning an old war trophy taken from a Legionnaire. My guess as to how they made the central rib when forging was by repurposing conical swaging dies used for forming arrowhead bases, rather than a lot of grinding (or dedicated swaging dies used expressly for this). Sort of like what you tried with your conical die, but with a second stacked on top to provide a crisp rib rather than precise strikes with a hammer alone. Steel was a premium item back then and I doubt they wanted to grind it into dust when they could've figured out a way to forge it and lose less steel, not to mention the fact that grinding back then was a lot more arduous of a task. I don't blame you for grinding it in though, as a blacksmith myself I shared your anxiety when you were hammering close to that central rib. No telling how many things I've made a bad hit on and decided it didn't need a rib after all lol

Yes thats definitely a possibility. I've actually made a Tool like this for another project but I simply had not made one for this one. So grinding was the way to go for me on this piece.

Hallo, bin selbst Schmied und möchte eine kleinere Speerspitze schmieden. Bei der ersten wollte ich die Hülse Feuerschweißen, hab das Teil aber verhaut 😂 Hält deine Hülse ohne verschweißen einen Wurf aus? Jedenfalls super geschmiedet Mann!

Hey! Nice work! Except it's not a spearhead from the "Middle Ages". Sorry, but you got an iron copy of a cast bronze spearhead. An ancient smith, had to find such a shape of the product, so that (ideally) after forging it should only be sharpened. After all, metal cost a lot of money. I am not belittling your work as a blacksmith, but it would be interesting to see the ancient techniques of making forged items from the Viking Age.

Its a reproduktion of the Gammertingen Spearhead form 570AD. The shape and size are a nearly exact copy. I do not know if the material Was leftover Black or polished but it was definitely possible and not unheard of at the time.

It depends on what youre planning to use it for. For a rough forged 11" Spearhead without the central rib, ill take about 75$ +Shipping from Germany. if you need a hardened and tempered piece or a good surface Polishing it'l cost a bit more
