The Celtic culture is known for its ironwork. In times of war the Celtic aristocracy often used richly decorated swords. This sword is a replica made after an original from around the 1st century AD. Around this period the swords were shorter than in preceding periods.
This sword has a length of 76 cm with a blade of 58 cm. The grip is made of wood and brass and is shaped like a styled human figure. Possibly this had a symbolic meaning and it protected the user of the sword. The blade is slightly leaf-shaped and made of carbon steel with a hardness of 48 HRC. It is delivered including a leather scabbard.

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.
