Viking Thrusting Spearhead with Ornate Socket

The Viking thrusting spear was more commonly used than swords, being much less expensive to produce. The wings (also called lugs), of Frankish origin, limited the penetration of the weapon and provided an effective parrying guard.

Hanwei's decorated spearheads, designed by Paul Chen, demonstrate the Vikings' creative mix of art and war, whereby weapons often carried intricate patterns which were created by using the niello process. This involved using an alloy of several metals (notably silver) mixed with sulfur, which was rubbed into an incised pattern and then fired.

Where the alloy had been rubbed into the engravings, it would remain black, while the rest of the surface would be polished to a bright finish. The decorating process used at Hanwei involves a little less alchemy but still provides a lustrous, permanent niello-like effect.
