Despite any differences between bronze and steel, there is no denying that Bronze Age weapons possess an appearance that rivals those of iron and steel. The Bronze Celtic War Sword, for instance, has a gilded look that is undeniably impressive. This attractive Celtic sword is cast in solid bronze, which is what gives it the solid, almost gilded look. The hilt features a narrow, disc-shaped pommel as well as a ribbed grip and a broad, V-shaped guard. The blade is narrow at the base and gradually widens out into a leaf-shape, which puts more mass at the end of the blade. The end result is a shape that is ideally suited for delivering a heavy yet effective cut. The blade also tapers to an effective point, but as was common with blades from this point in history, this sword is designed more for cutting then for stabbing. The sword is 36.6 inches long, and does not include a scabbard or sheath of any kind. Bronze might not be the best material for making weapons now that steel is readily available, but it still makes for a very impressive and pretty weapon, as the Bronze Celtic War Sword demonstrates.
