The royal grave of Mušov is a very rich royal burial ground of a senior Germanic elite dated in the second half of the 2nd century a.c. Due to the relevance to a military facility it is believed that the buried person was a Rome-allied Germanic ruler.
The spear-head is decorated with insignia of the most prominent war-chief of the tribe. The original piece is inlaid with silver, the insignia on our replica is just hämmerte in.
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.
