Iron butt cap

10(product tekst/content)

Similar butt caps were used in the Bronze Age already, made of bronze. The iron models were used from the beginning of th Iron Age to the 4th century AD. The butt cap protected against wear and tear, made it possible to place the spear firm in the ground, and could also be used as a weapon. Such butt caps were used by both Gaulish, Germanic, Greek, Etruscan and Roman warriors from infantry and cavalry divisions.

The butt cap is 9,5 cm long and has a diameter of 3,5 cm. It is handmade from steel.

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.
