The spear head is optionally made of mild steel (not stainless) or oil-quenched spring steel. The blade of the spear head is cut out of rolled steel, hammered and welded to the socket. The welds are then overhammered to maintain the forge finish. When you order the spear head with a wooden pole, the socket is pre-drilled and one pole end bevelled so that you can put the whole spear together easily. The spear head is secured in the pole with an iron pin, one end of which you have to hammer flat, so that the pin does not slip out.
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.
