Medieval Arrowheads Bodkins Spearheads

Medieval Arrowheads and Bodkins

These Type 1 arrow heads are hand forged and are historically correct in every detail even the weight. I forge these heads in a charcoal forge from one piece of wrought iron, (not mild steel) they are then hardened by carburizing which entails soaking the heads for several hours at the right temperature in a container packed with carbon bearing materials, such as charcoal, leather, bone, horn or various combinations of these (smells lovely). They are then finally quenched in brine.
