The royal grave of Mušov is a very rich royal burial ground of a senior Germanic elite dated in the second half of the 2nd century a.c. Due to the relevance to a military facility it is believed that the buried person was a Rome-allied Germanic ruler.
The spear-head is decorated with insignia of the most prominent war-chief of the tribe. The original piece is inlaid with silver, the insignia on our replica is just hämmerte in.
The daggers are approximately made as follows. The basic shape of the blade is made by a laser CNC machine. It is burned from spring steel. The semi-finished blade follows then in the groove cutter, where the cutting edge and the groove are milled. The blade is then oil-quenched and tempered to the desired hardness. Then the guard and pommel is attached to the blade tang. The tang is usually peened at the end (behind the pommel) and the cross-guard hard soldered with brass. Hardwood plates are placed under the handle wrapping from genuine cowhide so that the handle is sufficiently robust for a safe grasp. The steels surfaces obtain the desired finish in the end - with a wire brush or with a felt disc with polishing paste.
