Danish flint halberds

This is a relatively obscure type of flint tool, another product of Danish knappers trying to copy copper stabby things in flint. Not bad hey?

" />And this is a reproduction, it looks like the binding is of spruce roots or similar. Makes you think of some of the flint sickles over here...

Impressive, never heard of them before, now all I want to do is make one. Can't work out any use for it apart from killing, maybe people, maybe coup de grace on animals while hunting. Does look like a sickle. Gonna have to try learn more about all kinds of Danish knapping.

I thought you would like the flint version, this is a bronze one with a reconstructed handle. I prefer the knapped one any day.
