This dagger from Marto is based on a Celtic sword from the Iron Age. In 1902, workers accidentally found a Celtic grave on the North Grimston estate. The Celt was buried with a shield, two swords and a piece of pork. The smallest sword was decorated with an anthropomorphic grip (in the figure of a human), typical of Celtic swords from the La Tene period. Such swords were luxurious and exclusive. Similar swords have been found in Switzerland, Hungary, France and other former Celtic countries. The original sword is now on display at the Hull and East Riding Museum and is one of the best preserved anthropomorphic swords. This Celtic ornamental dagger is great for collectors of historical weapons and as home decoration. The blade is made of stainless steel and requires little maintenance.

This item is produced in limited quantities only. This means that every piece is unique. Sizes & finish may vary lightly from piece to piece.
Prevent rust and corrosion by oiling your weapons regularly. Remove rust easily with black sandpaper. Remove burrs with a whetstone. Make sure you have removed all burrs before using a battle-ready weapon, as they can cause wounds.
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.
