TRYING TO WORK OUT WHAT THESE ARE
THEY COME IN A CUSTOM WOODEN CASE ABOUT 8 3/16" LONG
THIS IS ALL I HAVE
THEY AVERAGE ABOUT 5 1/4" LONG
THEY ARE SURPRISINGLY LIGHTWEIGHT
APPROXIMATE WEIGHTS
4.8 grams OR 0.165 OUNCE
5.0 grams OR 0.175 OUNCE
5.1 grams OR 0.185 OUNCE
5.4 grams OR 0.190 OUNCE
5.4 grams OR 0.190 OUNCE
5.4 grams OR 0.190 OUNCE
6.3 grams OR 0.220 OUNCE
THE EDGES SEEM VERY SHARP
MAYBE INTERCHANGEABLE SPEAR POINTS OR ARROW TIPS?
OR MAYBE FOR POISON HUNTING DARTS ETC?
IN CASE YOU MISSED WITH THE FIRST SHOT THE POISON WOULD BE RUBBED OFF WHEN IT HIT THE GROUND OR BUSHES AND EACH HAS A LITTLE NOTCH JUST AT THE HILT WHICH MIGHT ALLOW A QUICK CHANGE IN THE FIELD?

    They look like interchangeable spear tips? but?
  2. RRP RRP, 7 months ago
    I thought of spears but couldn't work out why a set of such similar tips?

    Wondering if they could be some sort of trappers spikes ??
    Maybe stick them in the ground in a hole and wait til something or someone falls on them !!

    Maybe growing knives ..

    I've seen spear tips used in some tribes the shafts made from nature would break or get damaged but the tips could be re-used, Still only a guess that's what these are tho.
