The Pictus Knife was inspired by the Celtic culture, who made engravings on their weapons, utensils, and even tattoos on their bodies. The "Pictus" name also follows its original meaning (painted and engraved). The "endless knots" on its blade and handle are very characteristic of the Celtic culture.
