Ive been reenacting for a while now, and really new to knives and swords. I know little about celtic war knives from this time and I would like to learn more.
I am after some pictures of historical finds or war knives that are authentic replicas as a referance for something I may try to make or get made for me later on. Pictures of celtic war knives from teh gallic wars (58 BCE -52BCE) is what I am after. I need to get a good idea of what specifically made the knife celtic.

This would be the closest that I could find:



It's from the 1st century BC, Hungary. It's 41cm in length, with a thick T-spine. Other then that, I don't know any 1st century BC knives that would have been weapons. Most big knives AFAIK are earlier, such as the scale hilted knives, or germanic rather then celtic.
