Thread: Two bronze age knives

  1. #1

    Two bronze age knives

    This is a near exact copy of the bronze knife from Kvarsebo, Sweden:





    The is cast in casting sand (modern). The blade hammer hardened, has a hollow bevel, with a thick spine but a thin and shaving sharp edge. The hilt is red dear antler. Total length: 34cm.

    The second one is a typical tanged knife of which a lot have been found f.e. in Germany. This blade is authentically cast in a stone mould, finished with modern tools.







    The blade is hammer hardened, and is also set in a red deer antler hilt (which has been found preserved on several examples of this exact same type of knife). The total length is 31cm.
