Song Eight-Sided Thrusting Spear is one of the major battlefield pole arms during the Song Dynasty, designed with a very robust tip designed for armor piercing. The wide socket meant this spearhead is meant to be mounted on a thicker pole, with a reinforced collar in the junction between the socket and the tip, making the Song Eight-sided thrusting spear an anti-armor, anti-cavalry weapon.

Investment/lost wax casting with 1045 carbon steel.
Investment casting (also known as lost-wax casting in the art world), is the oldest known metal-forming technique. The key benefits are versatility, accuracy, repeatability, and integrity, and the wax can be reused. It is more expensive than other casting methods; however, it can incorporate intricate contours and the end components are near perfect, so they require little or no rework once cast.
