Spear

Einarr has had this spear for a while and only uses it in battle practise. Recently, he secured a new spear tip at the end and made a protective leather 'sleeve' on the spear as well.

First, he carved the design and then darkened it with a bit of brown shoe polish. Great, huh?!

Hi,

Yes, it looks really nice! Makes the spear something really special :) How is the leather attached to the pole? Nailed?

greetings,
Elsi :)

No, it was sewn! greetings, Arda

Ah, thank you!
I guess that is the better way as it doesn't affect the pole. Nailing might damage it.

love,
Elsi :)
