This weekend I finished a reproduction from one of my favorite bronze age artifacts found in the Netherlands. It was cast in a clay mould using lost wax, at Umha Aois 2013 in Dingle (Ireland). The edge is workhardened, and the detailed decoration is punched in after casting. More photos can be found here:

Sweet! I can see how that would be a favorite!

Almost looks like lettering on the grip--just the photo, I expect. ("Made in China"?? hee hee hee...)
