Default Spear tips ???

These were brought in to me over the weekend. My guess is spear tips. Smaller one appears to be hand formed, much more primitive than the larger one.
Larger one is 6 7/8" long, 2" wide at base, weighted ( filled ) 3 1/2" from point.
Smaller one is 5 3/8" long and 1 1/8 wide at base. Weight filled 2 1/4 inches from point. Any ideas whet they are ??

They don't look like potential weapons to me even though they are pointed. Too much thin metal. Maybe drawn rather than folded & welded. End openings too large/out of proportion for a proper spear shaft. No way to secure a shaft to point other than a friction fit. My guess is they are some type of machine parts for a cutting apparatus.

Regards,
Ed

Could these be spearheads made for statues? If they are spearheads, they appear to be non-functional (i.e., decorative).
