Part of a circular hilt; iron core banded with alternate rings of red sandstone and ivory(?), top broken; lower portion of copper/bronze expanding to lunate with three raised bands of bronze at each end; iron blade held by this bronze section; lower part of blade missing; blade section a diamond shape. Wood handle.
Made in one piece, leaf shaped blade with suggestion of mid rib. Hilt with raised edges to hold wood inlay in place. Inlay mostly preserved on one side, decorated with patterns of cu/br studs which do not pierce the central piece of metal and are therefore purely decorative.
