A not often seen lance or spear head that can be attributed to India or Afghanistan.
This piece has a long armour piercing leaf shaped blade with a diamond section and deep engraved symmetrical designs. There is a slight pattern when etched but I am unsure if I would call this pattern welded in the traditional sense. An interesting and rare armour piercing polearm head from one of the last theatres of war where the lance and the spear were commonly used.
This spear head is £195 or best offer.
