This sword has a length of 25" (plus the tang), and flat, unfullered blade. The shoulders are forged to a rounded contour. This sword originally had a one piece hilt, probably wood, bone, horn or perhaps ivory with expanded pommel and guard segment, rather than the iron cross guard of later examples. This example has been excavated but is preserved with original surfaces and edge intact in several areas. In particular, the point is preserved nearly as new, an exceptional feature.
