Default Silly questions ...

One (question) nothing to do with the other ...

1 - We already saw here a few examples of these lances, as reputedly of European origin. No doubt about that; yet those exuberant bulbous reinforcements (?) on the base of the blades, with that decoration, look so ... non European ... to me, of course .

2 - The multiple file marks on one of the tangs. If these were (pre-industrial) firearms this would be an assembly mark; but in a two part lance .
Anyone guess what they are for ?
