Medieval pole weapons by Astalo Medieval pole weapons by Astalo
First is medieval pole arm called Bardiche and I made it from old half broken "plow disc". (It was very hard steel and I broke at least five drill bits when I made those holes for pole sockets.)

Next objects are viking style spearheads from regular steel and bottom left is pole arm called Voulge. It's blade is forged from spring steel and spikes are from regular steel, just like that single spearhead in the last picture.

Voulge is mainly from central Europe (Very common weapon in "Hundred years war" and so on..) and Bardiche is mostly used in eastern Europe and Scandinavia.
Spears are so simple styles, that they have probably used similar pieces all over Europe.

I wish I had the drive to craft this sort of stuff myself! I have two spearheads which I'll be mounting to shafts, but I think that the extent of my abilities.
