The Celts were a nomadic, tribal people who populated Europe and the British Isles from at least the Iron Age well into the Roman era. From this diverse group the Scottish, Irish and Welsh cultures developed – and they also heavily influenced the peoples of Britain and Northern Europe. Their artwork was distinctive, and many examples of it survive to this very day – especially the “standing stones” scattered throughout Scotland and Ireland, rocks carved with knotwork and designs. The unique Celtic style extended to their weapons, and the Celtic Anthropomorphic Sword is an example of such. The hilt is made of solid brass. The POB on the celtic sword is flush right at the guard.
The Celtic sword sword is forged from 5160 High Carbon steel. The blade is polished and tempered to a Rockwell hardness of 60.
The Celtic Anthropomorphic Sword is based on surviving Celtic weapons in museums and private collections. Evolving from the Roman spatha, this style of sword combined a long, double-edged blade with a cast brass grip. The guard and pommel form the shape of a man, hence the name “Anthropomorphic.” The Pommel is the head and arms, while the guard is the legs, and the blade… well, what the blade represents should be more than obvious. This common Celtic design is here artfully reproduced by our bladesmiths.
