La téne sword type 2

Postby jake Vliegenthart on July 22nd, 2013, 5:08 am

Hello guy,
This is my first time on this forum.
I started a blacksmithing course last may. My i dea for this is to make a La téne sword type 2, the only thing i miss alot of information.
And i hoped you could be of help. I miss the size of the blade, the gradients ofthe beginning to the piece that is the point. The thickness of the blade (the middle). The dimensions of the needle with the slope. The thickness, size of the parry rod. The clearance angle of the cutting edge.
And the geometry of the point itself.

advanced thanks,jake

Celtic sword is always an individual problem. If you specify the region dating and maybe I can help.

Treveri - Galia Belgica, Iceni East Anglia, Parisii east Yorkshire or earlier Lutetia (Paris) region.
By the way, the period you describe is real early. I'm not sure whether these peoples except Parisii, were present during that period. And could you describe what you mean under the term 'La téne sword type 2'.

The linked sword is in my opinion is the better option of the two available "replicas" of La Tene II (Middle La Tene III -II BC) sword. Unfortunately, it is not consistent to the current level knowledge of the Celtic weapons. This replica has many bugs and is so to speak very commercialized. Try to find R. Pleiner or de J-M. Navarro books in some library to get a true references.

this one shows unfinished (wip) replica of Zevio grave 131 sword, also La Tene II period.

next two links to Patric Barta swords, perfect metalurgy, but little problems in detail

nice reproduction you can find also here, some late but several middle La Tene swords.
