We have implosion bows. And Beloved Adorie, who was made in the first age. But I think that's it...Dauntless? Is that armor first age era?
Of the sample artifact weapons and armor in the core, the only ones whose histories don't implicitly indicate manufacture in the First Age are Spring Razor and Freedom's Cadence, and the time of Freedom's Cadence is unclear—it could be of First or Second Age manufacture.
As others have noted, when "First Age artifice" is used in terms of game mechanics, it's describing a specific set of techniques that were not applied to all artifacts crafted in the First Age.
