  1. Two axes, one in Polish noble's ax Poland 17-18 century, the other is a North American triple batwing pipe tomahawk ... probably 18th century.
  2. Thanks gentlemen! Jeroen, this ax is very interesting because of the combination of the two techniques of mounting axes in the Bronze Age. Earliest flat ax and much later stocketed ax. In Western Europe from that period, I know only this copy. A little more connections of this type, two technologies, are located in Eastern Europe and in the Carpathian zone(Otomanii-Fuzesabony), from which this idea is supposed to come. Undoubtedly, this copy as well as those from the Carpathians are, to a greater or lesser extent, symbols of power or cult objects.
  3. Thanks Alan. ... all and family knives Bronze ceremonial ax from Krottenthal, Germany, 1300 - 1100 B.C. The two magnificent weapons belong to the earliest discoveries kept at the Archäologische Staatssammlung (Archaeological State Collection). In c.1784, a farmer in Krottenthal in Lower Bavaria dug up and sold some weapons. Quite obviously, the weapons belonged to a depot find, but most of the pieces probably went to the furnace. At least it was possible to save two pieces. The axe was brought to the Bayerische Akademie der Wissenschaften (Bavarian Academy of Sciences) in 1808 as a weapon of "outstanding beauty". The affiliation of the lance with the trove is not quite so clear. In the Nationalmuseum's (National Museum) old collection, it was the only object of the same quality from an unknown location. Because of the very similar patina, it was assigned to the Krottenthal Find. The axe is unique. The dating to the thirteenth to the eleventh centuries BC is based on the age of the lance tip "found nearby". The Krottenthal Axe would have been useless as a tool. It was either a ritual weapon or denoted rulership. The description and the first photo of the artifact come from the website: https://www.bavarikon.de/.../bav:ASM-OBJ-0000000000000019... Overall length 27 cm, blade width 12.5 cm, weight 770 grams. Flanged ax 39 cm long !!! and weighing more than one and a half kilograms comes from Mareuil-sur-Ourcq, France. The second one, set in a wooden handle, is also from France in Lignieres .... and is the only one of its type !! Combine socketed ax with flanged ax!
  4. Socket ax with a bird, Ordos plateau, 4th century BC. Length of the ax 13 cm, the width of the blade 5 cm, weight 290 grams. Total length 54 cm. Oak wood greased with wild boar. Longest dark-handled knife Ingolstadt,Germany around 1100-900 B.C Bronze + beech wood stained with vegetable decoction and greased with boar tallow, length 27 cm, blades 15 cm, total weight 120 grams. Long bright handle knife, Reallon, France 1000-900B.C Bronze + beech wood greased with boar tallow. Length 25 cm, blades 11.5 cm, total weight 120 grams. Third knife entirely cast in bronze, Șimleu Silvaniei,( Castle of the Batory family)Romania 1200-1000 B.C Overall length 20 cm, blades 12 cm, weight 120 grams.
  5. Thank you Gentlemen! .... aaaaa ... sculpture was inspired by a find from the Carpathian Arch from the Draguseni in Romania, dating back to the eneolytic culture of Cucuteni - Trypole, around 4000 BC. My sculpture is 1.50 m high and comes from the Carpathian beech forest.

    Iron tools.

    Several iron (but also flint, copper and bronze) tools, mainly axes, chisels from the first centuries of our era, based on bog finds from northern Europe.
  8. Hi,thanks! Solar cults prevailed throughout Europe at that time. The ax was most likely closely related to them. All shapes and sizes are found all over Europe. It is believed that the ax was of great importance in the cult ceremonies, and the origin of these practices most likely comes from somewhere in the Carpathian zone.

  10. Two knives, Bronze Age, Central Europe. The first one, cast entirely with five so-called pseudo rivets and a characteristic and unique tip of the handle in the shape of five bumps.

  11. Nice ... these holes just like the Roman one ...

  13. .. such .... "Leader set" from the Bronze Age: a halberd (a sign of power), a dagger and a knife. Everything is lined with several hundred years old black oak. The halberd (dagger scepter Polish) is 65 cm long, the blade is 27 cm.Find from England The dagger is 31.5 cm long and weighs 200 grams.Find from France. The knife is 27 cm long and weighs 100 grams.Find from Switzerland.
  14. For a long time I have been collecting materials on the construction of these .... interesting things from the early era of bronze from Europe. In English-language literature they are called halberds, in German-language Stabdolch-staffdagger, in Polish-language scepter dagger, and disputes about their purpose continue to this day. It is known for sure that they were symbols of power, it is assumed, after the surviving Irish specimens, that they could also be used in combat ....... I made two specimens: one, the one with three pseudo-rivets, continental based on finds from the Unetica culture (2300-1700B.C) from the areas of today's Poland, Germany and the Czech Republic. The four-rivet, wide-bladed one is modeled on Irish finds also from the Bronze Age. They are about 60 cm long, and the metal parts are made of tin bronze and are about 20 cm long. Materials: tin bronze, copper, oak wood, shellac.
