A rare Bactrian bronze short swort or dagger w. massive handle, dating to late 3rd or early 2nd mill. BC.

Very interesting type with an unusually thick handle and a very broad leaf-shaped blade.

The dagger is partly uncleaned and covered in the finest azurite blue and green patina imaginable!

Size: 34,6 cm. long (13,6 inches) and weighs 745 grams on the kitchenweight!

Condition: Choice with a loss at the point - otherwise nearly as made with slight roghness to the edge. Very good metal.

Ex. Johan Dæhnfeldt Estate Collection (2013).
