Anything similar for sale?
Two utilitarian North Indian spearheads and a spear butt spike. Both spearheads have a faceted socket and a head attached by welding it to a triangular projection from the socket. The narrow head has a thickened armor-piercing style bodkin point. The wider bladed one has a more conventional tapering.
Most likely Rajasthani. Such unadorned pieces can be rather hard to date, but probably 18th-19th century.

With a narrow blade of impressive thickness. Attributable to the Bundelkhand area.
A what? Yes exactly. An extremely rare piece, the only example I am aware of in published collections at…
The hilt is in the typical Marwari Rajput style, made by Ram Namar in 1857 A.D.
