177 second mass production

 When they arrived at the house, they removed Kullu from the cart and thanked everyone for their hard work. Krull let out a snort and expressed his joy. After this, it was time to move the luggage in. With Krull's help, I put charcoal, ironstone, clay, seasonings, liquor, and seed potatoes into their respective storehouses.

 After the loading, it was time for us to do whatever we wanted to do, but since we had a lot of production to do, we gave priority to the production of molds and sheet metal. Even half a day's work makes a difference.
 Samija, Deanna, and Liddy were in charge of the molds, and Rike and I were in charge of the sheet metal. Everyone worked silently until the sun went down.

 The next day, we finally started mass production. Unlike before, we had to make two different kinds, so we had to share the work. I made the spear, and the others made the sword. Riddhi will make the molds, Samija and Diana will cast them, and Rike will finish them.
 The first thing today is to see how many we can make. Whether we can make it in six days or not will determine the allocation of the rest.
 But we should be able to do it with this system. Ricke and his team are aiming for five a day, and I am aiming for four a day, but we can probably get there. There is a possibility that Rike will help me in the end.

 Place the sheet metal in the fire pit and heat it. When it is hot enough to work, take it out and hammer it on the anvil to make a shape.
 The cross-section is a rhombus, and the appearance is an isosceles triangle with very long oblique sides. Basically, the shape is designed only for piercing. The oblique side should be sharp, not as sharp as a blade, but not so sharp that it cannot be cut. A socket is made at the base to insert the handle, and the tip is hardened and tempered.
 The spear is characterized not only by its tip and length, but also by its pointy end. For the spearhead, a socket was made and the side that touches the ground was thickened to make a projection.
 This time, we are not going to make a high-end model, but a general model of quality. This time we will make it in the quality of a standard model, not a high quality model, so that we can recover if we run out of time.

 After splitting the thick wood into thin strips, I used a knife to cut them into sticks. This is the handle. If this were the case, oil would have been applied to the handle, but this time I left it as it is. I hope you will maintain it by applying the appropriate oil.

 After making the handle, insert it into the socket on the tip side, and hammer it into place. The same process is done on the spearhead side to complete the spear.
 After repeating the same process many times, the day was over.
 The number of spears completed on this day was five. At this speed, we should be able to finish in time.
 Rikke and his sword team had also achieved their goal of six spears, so at this pace, they should be fine.

 We'll do the same thing the next day. Speaking of which, the efficiency of making these spears seems to be improving. It is quite possible that four spears would have been the most I could make before.
 However, I'm glad that I don't mind repeating the same work. If it was painful to do the same thing over and over again, it would have hindered my daily production in the first place, not to mention yesterday. Well, I chose to be a blacksmith because I don't have that problem.
 With this in mind, I hammered away at the reddening sheet metal to make the first of many spears.
