This hand-forged butt spike provides excellent protection for the lower end of the wooden poles of halberds, lances, spears, etc. If you march with your polearm often or use the lower end even in combats, our butt spike will extend the lifespan of the wooden pole or shaft. The otherwise unprotected lower end of the wooden pole represents a weak spot of all polearms. The butt spike (also called as lance shoe) can also be used as a counterweight in the throwing polearms such as spears. When you order it with a polearm from us and wish us to mount it on the polearm, please write your wish in the comment of your order. This will be done for free.
In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
