This utility knife is based on different originals from the La Tène period. This was a culture in the European Iron Age. The culture flourished between 450 BC and the first century BC. The name comes from a place in Switzerland near a lake where many artifacts from this period were found. The La Tène art style is characterized by elegant organic forms, such as the so-called vegetal style.

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.
