thats awesome, i knew of the design of the maquahaiutl (spelling?) but i didnt know they used a similar design process to create spear heads. Awesome work, cant wait to see it mounted up and put through its paces Cheesy

looks scary enough by itself- now attach a shaft that is god knows how long (on a diagram i saw of various Aztecan weaponry the spear went all the way across) and then we'll se who will laugh at the primitive cultures Wink

That's some serious javelina hunter! Makes me want to finish my Maquahuitl!

Beautiful work Aztec. You ought to see if any museums in your area would consider an Aztec Weapons exhibit. You're is certainly good enough!
