Ancient Egyptian Bronze Dagger

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. Consequently, we see diverse cultural influences manifesting themselves in the bronze weapons of ancient Egypt. This piece was purchased as a part of a collection of other Egytian items. It is slightly bent as is visible in the photos. Make your own decision as to the cultural attribution - I will guarantee it is ancient to thye stated time period. It measures 26.5 cm and weighs 153 grams.
