 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

Made of wrought iron, this is the first type of short iron sword made on the European continent in recorded history. A typical Iron Age piece. There is approximately 1.5 inches missing at the point, but, all in all, a nice example, measuring 41 cms. This particular item comes from an old collection in Bristol.

Some consolidation work has been done to the blade to prevent the pitting deteriorating.
