This is an ancient bronze dagger from the middle east, possibly Egypt. The apparent high-copper content of the alloy and the general design put it prior to 1200 BCE.Bronze weapons were not made in ancient Egypt until after 2000 BC near the end of the Old Kingdom. It wasn’t until the Hyksos invasion of Egypt and their subsequent overthrow(circa 1550 BC), that the Egyptians began large scale production of bronze weapons using technologies learned from the Hyksos and neighboring cultures.

This rare, triangular blade ge appears to have been exposed to a process during manufacture that created a mottled appearance on the surface.

There are some losses to the edges of the blade a ...click for details

This one sold quickly! 

This is a museum quality 'guo ji' or 'hook-bladed halberd' from the Warring States period of ancient China.

The small hook shown in the photograph was found with the main blade and would have been attached to the weapon shaft just beneath the main blade. I could try to describe this fantastic find in detail but will let the images speak for me. More are available on request ...click for details
