Help with rigging a replica swordfish harpoon
« on: June 06, 2018, 11:08:45 PM »
I am looking for information on what knots, whipping, seizing or lashings that would have been used in the early 1900s to rig a swordfish harpoon. The harpoon is made up of a detachable brass dart and a wood pole with a 3/8? diameter steel rod in one end of the wood pole which the dart attaches too. The internet only shows old whaling harpoons or modern dart harpoons. Of course the old brass dart I have my not be as old as I was lead to believe.
Thanks for any help.
