Hello together in near and far,

I have made again a new bronze dagger. This time it's a early bronze age minoan dagger from Platanos (Crete). Here are the first pictures of the new dagger out of the minoan culture of the early bronze age:

Very nice! And a wicked little weapon for when things get up close and personal with an enemy.

Do you have any plans to offer blades for sale?

Hello,

thank you for your interest. In fact we would be delighted to offer them for sale one day. These are our own prototypes which only exist as one-off pieces.

We are still experimenting a lot with bronze daggers and are just about to work on our first bronze sword, a mycenaean Di-type approx. 61 cm long after a find from Knossos (Crete). Pictures of the making of the wooden model will follow in a few moments.

Once we have optimized the process of casting these blades and also the hilt making, we would like to offer them for sale.

In which of our daggers would you be interested?

Kind regards from Germany
