A big, heavy spearhead of an exceptional design. The socket is chiseled with a seamless pattern and has some faint remains of red paint in the cavities. The blade is made of Indian wootz and probably scarf welded to the socket. Double edge-grooves converging towards the tip attribute to the the spears' powerful appearance. The blade is 38mm wide. Very good condition.
