Abstrct: Artefacts connected with the influences from Eastern Europe and the Caucasus occur in the territory of Western Slovakia in the Late Bronze Age (HB2-HB3). This is the horizon of the so-called “Cimmerian bronzes”. They appear in burial complexes, depots as well as in form of individual finds. They are often parts of horse harnesses and most frequently, they are weapons – bimetallic daggers with openwork hilts of the Gamów type. At present, three knives of this type in three different variants are known in Slovakia. First is made of bronze, second of iron and the last is yet unpublished bimetallic dagger with a bronze handle and an iron blade.
