    Two knives from the Celtic-Germanic world ... "Brothers" ... both forged from one rod of welded-fibrous iron, of good quality, not delaminating. Both have cold vaulted cutting edges, to improve hardness ... as in an era. The decorated ridge is longer, 23 cm long, weight 126 grams. The shorter one has a square handle fully decorated, length 21 cm, weight 116 grams. Photos present individual stages of work. Hammer and file ... zero power tools!

  11. Vimose Denmark...Marcinkowo Poland spear with barbs. The first three photos show the spear from Vimose, on the island of Funen, Denmark. The last photo with the engraving is the spears from the Poland,Marcinkowo dated to the late Roman period. I forged both spears, the one with barbs and the decorative leaf, then sanded the file ... when suddenly I realized that this piece from Marcinków is very, very similar to the finds from Vimose !!! Do you see the similarity? The barbed spear is 20 cm long, 3.5 cm wide, 1.9 cm hole, weight 161 grams. The other with the decorated blade in the shape of a leaf is 19.5 cm long, 4 cm wide, 1.8 cm hole, weight 167 grams. Inlaid spear from Czelin,Poland,dated 1-3 century AD .

These five spears are based on finds from Illerup Adal. Most Celtic iron spears have a wide or very wide leaf and could be used for cutting and thrusting ... neighbors from behind the Rhine Germans, vice versa .... no leaf, their spears were mainly used for thrusting.
  14. OOO .... and you've hit the spot! When I started researching experimental archeology a few years ago, I came up with the same idea, and that I have my pond and swamp made by beavers is always the first thing I will do with bronze or iron and I'm happy with it, I'm just dumping, I'm not lying, there are several spears, buckles, axes. I believe that such activities bring me and my work closer to that era!
