well, can't see any seams or welds, if there are any, they've been well hand polished out. i'm assuming the blade was welded to the socket somehow, all the surfaces are nicely filleted and rounded off and smoothed. the tapered blade was not made from flat stock either. as far as the eye goes, it could have been all one piece, tho that would take a heck of a blacksmith. (or finisher). even the socket's rivet is flush and smooth, tho it appears to be a different metal & brighter.
