Details

These decorated spearheads, manufactured by Paul Chen/Hanwei, are decorated with intricate patterns replicating an original process known as the 'Niello' process. This involved using an alloy of several metals (notably silver) mixed with sulfur which was rubbed into an incised pattern and then fired. Where the alloy is rubbed into the engraving, it remains black while the rest of the surface is polished to a bright finish. Hanwei's process, while not tru 'Niello', still provides a lustrous and permanent Niello-like effect.
