And here they are, all done!

Twelve Museum of London Type 9 bodkins, hand forged in a mix of charcoal and steam coal with bellows from a billet of thousands of layers of bloomery iron and steel made for the Arrows vs Armour project by Owen Bush.

The heads have been normalised twice, and then water quenched, and tempered to a straw colour.

It'll be fascinating to see whether all the extra work (almost three times as long per head compared to wrought iron) is worth it!
