Late Bronze age c.1000 - 700 B.C. A rare and excellent Bronze Age small bronze "Fishtail" dagger / dirk found many years back in Germany and from a Norfolk collection. A lovely little bronze dagger with a well defined blade and a distinctive "Fishtail" shaped butt end which would have been fixed into an ornate carved wooden handle for use. The two opposing small nicks either side of the blade at the butt end were designed to engage with rivets inserted through the handle in order to hold the blade firmly and prevent it from working loose in use [see last photo for example of use on a modern replica of this dagger]. Totally intact and true with no kinks or bends and in very good overall condition, some very minor roughness on one side [not detracting] but otherwise a very nice example of good sound metal with a dark shiny green patina to a majority of the blade.
