This ‘’Munitions Grade” sword is not up to our normal high standards. Munitions grade items will typically have various bends or twists in the blades making them poorly suited for sharpening and cutting, but are still a great choice for collecting and re-enacting.

This Celtic Sword has a blade cast from bronze. It is secured to cast bronze hilt with three bronze rivets in the guard.

Steel is certainly a superior metal for a bladed weapon, but bronze has a few enviable properties. For one, bronze will usually bend instead of breaking - historically many bronze weapons lasted so long that that the act of re-sharpening them over time altered their entire shape - some swords even became acutely pointed daggers due to repeated sharpenings.

Also - a cast bronze weapon has a much more durable hilt than later steel weapons - the hilt can be cast from a single solid piece, making a loosening of hilt fittings impossible. Bronze is also far less prone to corrosion - the archaeological record is full of well-preserved bronze age weapons - their successor generations of iron weapons are far more scarce and far less well preserved.
