  1. ... I have described it several times ... first in form then on the side of the anvil.
  2. ... I'm here .... what's happening?
  3. Thanks Frosty! These knives were used in the period of La Tene, mainly in the Eastern Celts, although they are also found in Germany. In many books they are described as "ritual knives for cutting meat" ..... I strongly disagree with that! The way the handpiece is made proves it! The handles are very short and have two balls, they are adapted to hold them in two fingers and ask for cut punches, from above in a large or opposite way. To cut the meat you need a much better grip, with all your hand !!
